Nutritional qualities

Besides lending the tangy taste and appealing red colour to various food preparations it is quite beneficial for health. Tomatoes are high in potassium, Vitamin C & A and are cholesterol free. They are rich in a special pigment called lycopene, which is released from its skin only after the cooking process. The pigment is a strong antioxidant. Scientific studies have indicated that eating tomatoes in the cooked form reduce the chances of cholesterol related heart diseases and digestive tract cancers.
