IIRC lycopene has also been shown to be good for the heart.

How bizarre - eating tomatoes helps you stop looking like a sun dried tomato.  ;D

People who don't end their sentences with prepositions live for longer. Eat up your pasta sauces, don't eat your pasta sauces up. :)

I love the way that despite the studying looking specifically at tomato paste has a dodgy "recommendation" that eating more pizza may help.

Pizza?   It's only a foreign name for cheese on toast, why get excited ???

Nah, that's Croque Monsieur...  :demon:

A healthier way of getting all that lycopene goodness would be lashings of ratatouille, or just a simple tomato-based sauce with some wholemeal pasta.

Nom nom nom...  :P

You don't fool me Mr Spesh sir, I have been to France.    A Crock Monsewer has ham in it, a Pizza doesn't.

Care to explain the ham and mushroom pizza I had the other day, then?   ;)

Also, I think most of "those" sauces contain lots of Maltodextrin (modified maize starch), worse for you than sugar I'm led to believe. :o

The Loyd Grossman ones seem to be free of it (Pasta sauces only) :'(

I don't think it's the maltodextrin itself that's bad.  It's just it's hidden "sugars" in food.  For an energy drink it's fine, I think it has a higher GI than sugar so great for instant energy ;D

I'd think it's used to cheaply thicken sauces, I'd rather not have it with my pasta.  When I mke my own tomato sauces I never add any sugar, don't see the need :thumbsup:

Well sometimes a little sugar helps - generally because the tomatoes we get in the UK lack the natural sweetness of those grown in sunnier climes, and tend to be quite acid. Generally though I don't add sugar either.
