Why does a supplement made from tomato paste have a health claim, but not the tomato paste itself?

The Tomato Foundation aims to answer this question and win an EFSA Health Claim for Tomato Paste/Products – for improved blood flow.

Traditional tomato products - like paste, purée, passata, whole canned, diced, crushed and juice - are used in the cuisine of cooking cultures everywhere. They are tasty and versatile, and loaded with nutrients that protect our health.

We believe that scientifically proving the powerful health effects of these traditional tomato products speaks of the powerful natural health properties of whole plant foods.
