When Cooked is Better than Fresh

You’d think that when it comes to absorbing nutrients and boosting control of PCOS symptoms via a healthy diet, the rule would be the fresher the source, the better. But tomatoes are the exception because a cooked or processed tomato gives up more lycopene than a fresh one.
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, a crucial phytochemical antioxidant which fights declining eyesight and heart disease. Women with PCOS are at increased risk from both conditions because they are classic symptoms of both pre-diabetes and the type 2 variety. PCOS makes women prone to both forms of diabetes.
Lycopene is tightly bound within a tomato’s cell walls. But heat breaks down those walls, releasing more lycopene for absorption by the body.
Great sources of lycopene are canned tomatoes, salsa in jars, ketchup, spaghetti sauce, tomato soup and sauteed fresh tomatoes.
