Why are Sundried Tomatoes so good for you?
If tomatoes are a superfood then sun-dried tomatoes are super superfoods! Tomatoes are known for their high source of vitamins C, A and E, as well as providing elements of folic acid, and potassium. They also contain essential antioxidants such as lycopene which helps reduce the risk of cancer.
However, fresh tomatoes can deteriorate rapidly after they have been picked as they have a high level of water content. If the tomatoes are dried they retain their flavour and many of the antioxidants and vitamins, making sun-dried tomatoes a healthy option.
