The Power of the Tomato

We wanted to tell you about a new website Tomato Products Wellness Council at You can download recipes (the Chili Colorado sounds very good – I plan to try this very soon), nutritional information, scientific studies and the latest research findings about processed tomato products.

More than 200 scientific studies have demonstrated the power of tomato products in promoting good health and preventing cardiovascular disease, various forms of cancer, osteoporosis, sun damage while reducing inflammation levels and more.  Processed tomatoes are the number one source for the powerful antioxidant lycopene in the American diet.  Tomato products are healthy, affordable and popular in a variety of cuisines making consuming tomato products one of the easiest and most effective steps you can take to improve your health.  Add more red to your meals with soup, juice, salsa, sauce, paste, ketchup, diced and whole canned tomatoes.

The Tomato Products Wellness Council is a voluntary council of growers, processors and well-known brands that leads the tomato industry effort on scientific research. The Council has identified nearly 500 scientific studies that demonstrate the health benefits of a diet rich in tomato products.

    I love tomatoes… I grow them every summer and add them to everything! It’s great to know how healthy they are.

    I would love to exchange links with you! I have a PR3 health blog at and think the information in it coincides with your blog.
