US: New sticker heralds benefits of higher lycopene
According to the Mayo Clinic, lycopene is a carotenoid that has been identified as an antioxidant with the potential for several health benefits. There have been numerous studies that correlate high intake of lycopene with reduced incidents of both cancer and heart disease. However, these studies have so far not been able to make definitive conclusions on how much lycopene is needed and just how beneficial lycopene may be versus the other vitamins in tomatoes.
Recently, a new study was published to help solve these open questions. On October 9, 2012, Neurology – the most widely read and highly cited peer-reviewed neurology journal – published a study that concluded a high serum concentration of lycopene obtained from consuming tomatoes decreases the risk of stroke in men.
Bejo Seeds will unveil its new “High Lycopene” package sticker at the PMA “Fresh Summit” show in Anaheim, CA, Booth 2838.
