All About Tomatoes

The 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend eating a variety of vegetables, especially dark-green, red and orange vegetables, as well as beans and peas. Tomatoes are a flavorful addition to meals and provide a wide variety of nutrients and health benefits. Though low in calories, they are a good source of vitamins A, C, and K; the mineral potassium; and fiber. Tomatoes also contain lycopene, which gives tomatoes their deep red color but is also a powerful antioxidant that some research suggests may help protect against certain diseases.

Tomatoes are in peak season during the summer months, but canned and jarred options allow you to enjoy this powerhouse vegetable all year long!

Campbell's® offers a variety of delicious, affordable, and convenient tomato products to help you get more of this nutritious red vegetable. This includes Prego® Italian sauces, like the Farmers' MarketTM varieties, V8®100% Vegetable juices, Pace® salsas, SpaghettiOs® canned pasta, and numerous tomato-based soups, like Campbell´s® Tomato soup, Campbell´s® Soup on the Go Creamy Tomato soup, Campbell´s® Homestyle Zesty Tomato bisque, Campbell´s® Organic Sun-Ripened Tomato & Basil Bisque, and more!
