New functional foods from tomatoes
Functional foods are enriched with compounds with beneficial and healthy properties, such as polyphenols and carotenoids which can be found in high quantities in tomato by-products. A tomato powder can be prepared from by-products of tomato processing, i.e. peels and seeds, following dehydration. The powder, characterised by the presence of natural compounds with proven antioxidant properties such as lycopene and β-carotene, can be used as an added ingredient to be added to cheese, bread and other food products. The resulting product is therefore red-coloured and enriched in natural antioxidant compounds.
