Tomatoes are botanically fruits because they form from a flower and contain seeds.

Tomatoes in many forms—fresh, cooked and as juice—help protect against chronic diseases and support a physically active lifestyle.

A tomato-rich diet has been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease.

Lycopene and beta-carotene, two antioxidants found in tomatoes, have been shown to possess anticancer properties.
