Tomatoes are well known for being a vegetable with high antioxidant capacity. They contain carotenoid pigments such as lycopene, associated with such health benefits as bone health, reduced risk of prostate cancer, and decreasing sun damage by UV radiation. Several studies have shown higher antioxidant levels in organic tomatoes when compared to conventional tomatoes. A new study published in the IOSR Journal of Agriculture and Veterinary Science supports these previous findings by showing that organic tomatoes have significantly higher antioxidant ability than conventional tomatoes. The study concludes that “organic tomatoes have higher antioxidant ability than conventional tomatoes.”
