Canned tomato sauce

What's your preference for canned tomato sauce?
We've used Hunts and Redpack.
The plus for Hunt's (aside from our owning ConAgra stock) is that the can liner is non-plastic.
Redpack has a few additional ingredients ( garlic, onion and red peppers).

I don't buy tomato sauce. Diced tomatoes or tomato paste and I buy Contadina.

Sorry, I didn't notice there was a poll.

I don't buy tomato sauce, mostly because it has added salt.

I'm with you, kiddo; but I try to compensate by not adding much or any salt to my recipes and prefer a little salt to some other additives as a preservative.
Atsa why I have liitle love for the sun dried tomatoes I tried.

When not using fresh tomatoes I buy store brand, any brand, least expensive brand. When using canned tomato sauce I usually add enough more other ingredients that I doubt I would notice any difference between brands.

If I lived in LA, I'd concur about fresh tomatoes (but sometimes time can be at a premium) and affordable fresh cooking tomatoes, during October through June, are not practical in the N.E. US. Store brands can be great but are not always consistent.
