Featured Vegetable Product: Tomato puree
Tomatoes are one of the highest natural food sources for Lycopenes and provide a nutritious and colorful( red) ingredient for a wide variety of food and beverage products. Tomatoes are also a great source of fiber and minerals like iron, chromium, potassium and manganese, among others.
Tomatoes were thought to originate in South America and were brought back to Europe by Spanish explorers. Today, they are a global food source. Tomatoes are part of the Solanaceae family ( Nightshade) and are actually a fruit, not a vegetable. They contain high concentrations of Lycopene, a powerful and important antioxidant and anti cancer agent. Lycopene has been linked to risk reductions of prostate cancers, and many other types of cancer.
