Tomatoes With Loads Of Added Protein



Tomatoes play an important role in a healthy diet. They have high levels of vitamins C and K and are rich in phytonutrients like lycopene and beta-carotene.


Researchers from the John Innes Centre in the UK have found out how to pack even more supernutrients into the red fruits. By adding a protein that makes the fruit go into overtime producing a class of polyphenols (or antioxidants) called phenylpropanoids.

Heart disease and cancer prevention

These compounds  are similar to resveratrol, as told they have been discovered to help prevent heart disease and cancer. They got the engineered fruits to pump out the same amount of polyphenols in 50 bottles of red wine, cheers to that!
