Lycopene is a bright red carotenoid pigment, a phytochemical found in tomatoes and other red fruits. 
Lycopene is the most common carotenoid in the human body and is one of the most potent carotenoid antioxidants. Its name is derived from the tomato's species classification, Solanum lycopersicum (formerly Lycopersicon esculentum).

Nutritional benefits

Lycopene is the most powerful carotenoid quencher of singlet oxygen, being 100 times more efficient in the singlet-oxygen quenching action than Vitamin E, which in turn has 125 times the quenching action of glutathione (water soluble).

Singlet oxygen produced during exposure to ultraviolet light is a primary cause of skin aging.Given its antioxidant properties, some scientific research has investigated the correlation between lycopene consumption and general health. Early research suggested some amelioration of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, and even male infertility.The most recent study, however, has cast significant doubt on these benefits, showing no link between lycopene and cancer prevention. In fact, a related antioxidant, beta-carotene, was shown to increase the number of prostate cancer cases.


Regular tomatoes and tomato products mainly contain the all-E (trans-)isomers oflycopene (between 35-96% of total lycopene content), but also some Z (cis-)isomers,mainly as 5Z, 9Z, 13Z & 15Z in percentages varying between 1-22% (Schierle et al.,1997).20071231195237775.JPG
