Lycopene is an antioxidant found in tomatoes. Today in America TV read a recent study which reported that men who have more lycopene in their diets are at a lower risk of having a stroke. It was also learned that cooked tomatoes have more of the antioxidant than raw tomatoes. Bear in mind that a cup of ready-to-serve marina sauce has more than 31,000 micrograms of lycopene while the average raw tomato has about 3,165 micrograms. Other fruits and veggies with the good stuff include watermelon, grapefruit and mango. If the risk of stroke runs in your family, it makes sense to eat more foods made from cooked tomato products like puree, spaghetti sauce and tomato paste.
