I could be wrong sunnyside but I think they could use mainly Roma [Egg] tomatoes which I believe are acid free.

That's a great tip Andy, I suffer from gout if I eat to many tomatoes, would that help me.

Besides the remedies mentioned, longer cooking will reduce any acidity. San Marzanos are supposed to be the best tomato available, but I have not had them in raw form yet.
