Lycopene Introduction

Lycopene is an antioxidant which is a carotenoid pigment found naturally in many fruits and vegetables that have a yellow, red and orange color.  Its name is derived from the tomato’s species classification, Solanum lycopersicum.

Lycopene, similar to other carotenoids, is a natural fat-soluble pigment (red, in the case of lycopene) which is synthesized by some plants and micro-organisms but not by animals, where it serves as an accessory light-gathering pigment and to protect these organisms against the toxic effects of oxygen and light.
