Nutrients & Antioxidants
EDEN Pizza Pasta Sauce contains lycopene, perhaps the most effective known antioxidant. Cooked tomatoes are the best source of lycopene. Over 600 carotenoid plant pigments are antioxidants. Red lycopene out performs them all in antioxidant ability. Cooked, deep red Roma and cherry tomatoes are highest in lycopene, and organic were even higher.
Cooking with a bit of organic EDEN Extra Virgin Olive Oil increases lycopene absorption. Although lycopene is beneficial, it's not just lycopene that makes tomatoes healthy. In whole cooked tomatoes lycopene works with other phytonutrients and vitamins making it much more effective than isolated lycopene supplements.
John Erdman, professor of food science and human nutrition and of internal medicine at the University of Illinois said, "It has been unclear whether lycopene itself is protective. We believe people should consume whole tomato products in pastas, salads, in tomato juice, and even on pizza."
