Beefsteak Tomatoes, Red
Tomatoes are a very good source of vitamins A, C and K and a good source of potassium and manganese. Deep red tomatoes contain high levels of the carotenid, lycopene, a powerful phytochemical. Lycopene is not well absorbed into the body unless the tomatoes are cooked and some dietary fat (such as olive oil) is present. In addition, vine-ripened tomatoes have more lycopene than those that ripen after they are picked.
One large (3” diameter) ripe tomato provides, on average, 33 calories, 0g fat, 7g carbohydrate, 2g dietary fiber, and 2g protein.
Tomatoes are packaged in breathable transparent bags allowing them to stay fresh while in storage and limit human interaction which helps to prevent food contamination.
