News; Do Not Add Sugar in Tomato Salad

Published: Tuesday 19 August, 2014

Tomato, known as the magic fruit/vegetable for beauty, contains a lot of vitamin a, vitamin b, vitamin p, vitamin c, beta-carotene, lycopene, and various trace elements.

Tomato is a strong antioxidant as well as the best food for sun protection. Besides, just like Zi Xiu Tang, it contains malic acid, citric acid and carbohydrate that can quench thirst, improve digestion, and relieve dyspepsia and inappetence. In addition, the fruit also has other functions such as anti-cancer, anti-aging, and skin care.

In summer, a dish of tomato salads mixed with sugar is absolutely appetizing. However, some people will suffer from diarrhea, abdominal pain and other symptoms after eating it, even taking diarrhea or colitis medications does not work. What are the reasons? In fact, this is the “sweet mite” to blame. Mites like feeding on white sugar, tablet sugar, maltose and molasses. And they are mostly taken into the body through diet and then make people sick. They can not only cause diarrhea, but also cause ulceration by penetrating into the intestinal mucosa.

To reduce the number of mites and avoid their effects on human body, you’d better take Bee Pollen zi xiu tang and heat the sugar before mixing if you really want to eat tomatoes in this way. Generally speaking, heating the sugars at 70 degrees Celsius for 3 minutes can reach the goal of killing mites.

In addition, the lycopene contained in tomatoes is a fat-soluble substance. After meeting oil and being heated, those substances can be absorbed by the body more easily. However, mixing sugar with tomato salad will reduce the body’s absorption of lycopene, and thus weaken the anti-cancer effects of tomatoes.

Which is better, raw or cooked tomato?
Tomatoes can be eaten raw or cooked. Both are good for health, so you can choose one zi xiu tang bee pollen according to your own preference. Experts introduced that both lycopene and beta-carotene are soluble in oil, so fried tomatoes or soup are good, and the absorption rate is low if you eat tomatoes raw. However, if you only want to get vitamin C and dietary fiber, then both raw and cooked tomato are ok, as tomato has strong acidity that are helpful for the stability of vitamin c.

Health Tips:
It’s best not to remove the skin when eating tomatoes, as the tomato skin also contains vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. In addition, remember to fully wash the tomato if you eat it raw.
