Today, an article from DailyMail UK reported that reheated spaghetti bolognese could reduce the risk of cancer just because the tomatoes are playing its beneficial role.
The True Story from Scientists Research
Eating reheated spaghetti bolognese could reduce your risk of cancer.
Scientists have discovered that multiple rounds of heating - plus a little extra oil - enhance the health benefits of processed tomatoes.
The technique alters the structure of the tomato molecule lycopene so that it is more easily transported into the bloodstream.
Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, has been shown to prevent cancers and may also combat heart disease and diabetes.
Previous studies indicated that processing raw tomatoes into purees or sauces increased the benefits.
Now researchers have discovered a way to enhance this further, with a technique that is already used by families in making and reheating their spag bol.
In the average tomato, lycopene generally has a straight or 'linear' shape that hinders its ability to pass through intestinal walls into the blood. Read true story from DailyMail UK
