Tomatoes are low in fat and calories, in fact, they are mostly water, fibre and plenty of good vitamins (A and C) and minerals (especially potassium). One of the compounds present in tomatoes is lycopene, a carotenoid pigment responsible for its deep-red colour when ripe, well-known for its strong antioxidant quality.
These properties have been shown to reduce the risk of chronic disease by eating lycopene-rich foods. Studies have shown that a diet rich in lycopene, including a high consumption of tomatoes and tomato products, prevents the occurrence of several types of cancer as well as atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.
Tomatoes grown outdoors during summer and harvested when ripe show higher lycopene content than those produced in a greenhouse and/or picked green. All the more reason to eat seasonal foods! An interesting fact about caring for your health with tomatoes is that even though the handmade procedure of tomato sauce reduces lycopene concentration compared to fresh tomatoes, it improves its bioavailability. In other words, for the same type of tomato, eating it in the form of a sauce provides you with more benefits than in a fresh form. In addition to that, eating tomatoes or tomato-based products together with oil or a source of fat makes lycopene absorption even more effective.
Tomato sauces are common for meat and vegetables, known as bases for Mexican salsas or sauces for pasta dishes, have a rich flavour, high water content, soft flesh which breaks down easily, and the right composition to thicken into a sauce when they are cooked.
