March K-Food: TomatoOne of the Best Low-Calorie Fruits…Rich in Lycopene and Effective in Cancer and Aging Prevention

Tomato is widely used as an ingredient for various dishes—pasta, sandwiches, and many more. It is good for losing weight and overcoming fatigue. Moreover, it is known to be effective in preventing cancer and aging, thanks to the abundant lycopene content.

Korea produces 460,000 tons of tomatoes on average throughout the year in smart farms and automated-green houses. About 3,800 tons are annually exported to Japan, Hong Kong, and other overseas markets. Korean tomatoes are well-received abroad because of their thick flesh and high storability.
