It has been said that the more colorful the food on your plate is, the better nutritional value it offers. In this season of get-togethers and good food, it’s imperative to not only regulate how much we eat, but also take into consideration what kind of food we eat and serve for our loved ones.
This year, have a heartier media noche with the rich red of Dole Tomato Sauce, the perfect flavorful ingredient to your favorite dishes. More than making food tastier and more delectable, its health benefits are manifold. Aside from being made with 100% real tomatoes, it is also free from added MSG and artificial flavors and colors. Just imagine menudo, caldereta, morcon, and other Filipino holiday staples made healthier.
Rich in vitamins A, C and K, Dole Tomato Sauce helps prevent poor eyesight, harmful oxidation of cells and bone problems. One pack contains cooked tomatoes that are rich in lycopene, a pigment responsible both for the rich color and its ability to fight symptoms of lung and colon cancers, cardio-vascular diseases and diabetes.
Lycopene has also been proven to provide the skin 33 percent more protection, giving it armor against sunburn and easy aging. It also reduces the risk of prostate cancer in men, and studies show that individuals who showed higher lycopene content were less prone to suffering heart attacks.
End this year with a bang by serving good food that doesn’t only satisfy the taste buds but also contribute to the overall wellness of the body.
