Lyc-O-Mato® is the ingredient of choice for food, beverage and dietary supplement manufacturers looking to deliver the health benefits of the tomato to a consumer market tuned in to a wellness and prevention lifestyle. Lyc-O-Mato® antioxidant-rich, tomato lycopene complex contains lycopene, beta-carotene, phytoene, phytofluene, tocopherols and phytosterols. The presence of these phytonutrients sets the Lyc-O-Mato® complex apart from synthetic lycopene found in the marketplace. Research shows that the activity of lycopene is enhanced through its synergistic relationship with the other antioxidants that occur naturally in the tomato. It is this antioxidant activity inherent in a whole tomato that scientists believe is responsible for the health benefits associated with the consumption of tomato. Clinical studies show that tomatoes in the diet help prevent cellular and DNA damage and support cardiovascular, prostate and skin health.
Lyc-O-Mato® Powder Fortification
Lyc-O-Mato® soft gels, available from many manufacturers, enable consumers to conveniently supplement their diet with important tomato phytonutrients. For those who would rather consume these tomato nutrients as part of their daily diet, Lyc-O-Mato® Powder is being used to fortify an increasing number of food and beverage products including baked goods, soy "meats", yogurt, smoothies, and cereals. As little as 5mg tomato lycopene per serving can turn an ordinary food into a carrier of important health benefits. Lyc-O-Mato® is 100% natural and offers the sophisticated, health-conscious consumer a superior alternative to synthetic lycopene.
