PROCESSED CAN BE HEALTHY
Do you love pizza?
Although there are many tasty reasons to enjoy the savory Italian dish, consumers will be happy to learn there are nutritious benefits as well! Of course, in order to be a well-rounded meal (pun intended) the quality of the ingredients matter.
“When you make things with love and care…
they’re always good for you.”
Angelo Womack, Rad Time Pizza (Tomato Wellness Film – #SauceOnTop Trend from Pizza Expo)
Many consumers assume the veggie toppings are what make a pizza healthy, but it’s actually what is under the cheese that holds the nutrition. When we break down the layers of a pizza, the tomato sauce, by volume, provides the most benefits. Although the word “processed” has gained a rather negative connotation, processed tomatoes can actually provide nutritious benefits that cannot be obtained from fresh tomatoes. A freshly picked tomato is 95% water but by processing the fruit the nutrients are then concentrated, especially lycopene.
