Orange Tomatoes Have Better Lycopene

Scientists have discovered that orange Tomato like the Amana Orange and Carolina Gold Tomato contain a form of lycopene that's easily absorbed by the body than the cancer-preventive lycopene that's present in red tomatoes, like the Abraham Lincoln. It is a fact that to get the most lycopene from red tomatoes, the fruit must be cooked first.

Researchers have found out that people who ate orange tomatoes had more lycopene in their skin than those who ate red tomatoes. Orange tomatoes are plentiful in the Philippines.
