Consisting mainly of water, tomatoes are rich in B-C-E vitamins, beta-carotene, potassium, folic acid, iron, phosphorus and calcium. They also contain antioxidants such as lycopene that help to protect the skin from free radicals responsible for ageing and for many types of cancer. Agricultural tomato waste could be used to produce valuable functional ingredients as part of a sustainable strategy that uses innovative extraction methods to create new economic opportunities in the tomato’s value chain.
