We never sell imported Tomatoes from Australia ever.
Eat raw with a little olive oil or other oil - for example in a salad dressing (to increase absorption of vitamin A precursors & other health benefits). For a more intense flavour & better colour keep tomatoes out of the fridge
Scientists believe that older men could avoid frequent & sleep disturbing visits to the toilet by the simple expedient of eating more tomatoes.
Researchers say that lycopene, a nutrient which gives tomatoes their colour of red, could ease & help the affliction which is suffered by millions of older men.
Lycopene is capable of slowing down the enlargement of the prostate which causes the condition. The study was published in the online journal: Oncology and Cancer Case Reports & was based on a review of 67 research studies.
As men become older many suffer an unexplained expansion of the prostatem, a gland which is wrapped around the urinary tract. It is then that the thicker prostate constricts the tube & can block it altogether. This causes a condition called benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH).
Proffessor Hiten Patel, Bart's & The Royal London Hospital, led the team which reviewed the research. "We know lycopene appears to slow down development of the prostate cancer. Now it seems capable of slowing down prostate enlargement & development of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) as well" he said.
Ideal for Sauce, Soup, Relish, Chutney.
Eat them raw in salads & sandwiches, or cooked on pizzas, in a pasta sauce, in casseroles, grilled or baked.
Great in soup, omelettes.
