Tomatoes are a rich source of vitamins and minerals. But did you know that processed tomatoes have even higher levels of antioxidants than raw ones? You have plenty to choose from on the shelf.
Tomatoes provide a good source of vitamins and minerals, are low in calories and high in carotenoids, beta-carotene and lycopene. Recent research shows that when processed, tomatoes have even higher levels of lycopene, which is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants.
In the last twenty years, there’s been an explosion of new and refined processed tomato products. Purées and passata have become major products together with ketchup, tomato paste, whole peeled tomatoes, chili sauce, pizza and pasta sauces. Consumers simply love tomatoes.
