Tomatoes are said to be one of the most healthy and beneficial foods in our daily diets. Extremely low incalories, they are rich in vitamins A and C, beta-carotene and potassium, as well as a great source of fundamental antioxidants, such as lycopene. The concentration of lycopene in tomatoes actually increases when sauces are cooked or tomatoes are processed in any way. Recent studies have shown that high intake of lycopene-containing vegetables reduces the incidence of certain types of cancer. In Italy, it's believed that tomatoes also help prevent cardiovascular diseases and acne, and aid in digestion - in short, a near-miracle food that benefits the whole body.
