We have all heard of tomatoes and lycopene…but tomatoes are so much more. The tomato is considered both a fruit and a vegetable and in an integral part of cuisine across the globe. The tomato plant is believed to be native to Mexico, but today, tomatoes are grown all over the world. There are so many varieties and sources of tomatoes to explore.
The great news is that the tomato contains a wealth of nutrients and vitamins (A, K, B6, folate, and thiamine). They are an excellent source of potassium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, and copper. They supply protein and fiber and well know organic compounds like lycopene.
Many food recipes include tomatoes in some form, especially in the Mediterranean region. One cup of a concentrated tomato product contains almost 25 mg of lycopene, compared to 4 mg of lycopene in one fresh tomato.
