Tomato is, without any doubt, one of the essential ingredients in almost all cuisine, especially due to its important benefits and properties. It can be consumed by itself, for salads, with sauces…

Not in vain, as you can read on in this post, it stands out for the number of minerals, vitamins, and water (roughly 94%) that it contains.

For example, due to lycopene, tomato has an intense red colour. Lycopene is an antioxidant substance that does not transform into vitamin A, and has a protective effect against a series of heart complications.

It contains a great number of vitamins (B, C and A), and it is ideal for weight loss diets because it has low calories and low fat. At the same time, it is also important to pointed out that its properties contain minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, and more.
