A heartily delicious spaghetti sauce. It is a good source of phytonutrients.
Organic Eden Spaghetti Sauce contains lycopene, perhaps the most effective antioxidant. Cooked tomatoes are the best source of lycopene. Over 600 carotenoid plant pigments are antioxidants. Red lycopene out paces them all in antioxidant ability. Comparing tomatoes we find heirloom Roma and cherry tomatoes are highest in lycopene, and organic were even higher. Cooking tomatoes with a bit of organic Eden Extra Virgin Olive Oil significantly increases lycopene absorption. Although lycopene is beneficial, it is not just lycopene that makes tomatoes healthy. In whole cooked tomatoes lycopene works together with other phytonutrients and vitamins making it much more effective than isolated lycopene supplements. John Erdman, professor of food science and human nutrition and of internal medicine at the University of Illinois said, "It has been unclear whether lycopene itself is protective. We believe people should consume whole tomato products in pastas, salads, in tomato juice, and even on pizza."
Organic Eden Spaghetti Sauce is versatile on pasta, in casseroles, soups, stews, Spanish rice, barbecue sauces, over organic polenta (corn grits), or as a sauce over baked enchiladas. It is good chip dip too, add some good hot sauce
Eden is the best value.
