Hello members of the BEST email list,

A new study comparing unprocessed tomatoes and tomato processing wastes has
found tomato processing wastes contain usable levels of -carotene,
tocopherols, sterols and terpenes, which have been shown to have
antioxidant properties. Though the processing wastes contain less lycopene
than unprocessed tomatoes, these processing wastes could isolate the
chemicals with antioxidant properties to be used to enhance foods and
vitamins. It's another possible use for processing wastes in the tomato
industry.
