What is Lycopene?
Lycopene is a carotenoid pigment found in tomatoes and other red fruits and vegetables. Carotenoids are fat-soluble compounds that are responsible for the bright red, orange, and yellow colors found in many fruits and vegetables. Lycopene is the carotenoid that gives tomatoes their characteristic red color.
