Automatic Tomato Weight Grading Machine
Automatic tomato weight grading machine is suitable for grading fruits and vegetables by weight.
Despite technically being a fruit, the tomato is generally categorized as a vegetable. Tomatoes are the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate and vitamin K.
Health benefits of tomatoes
- Heart health
A study in middle-aged men showed that low blood levels of lycopene and beta-carotene are linked to increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Increasing evidence from clinical trials shows that lycopene supplementation is effective at lowering LDL cholesterol. Clinical trials of tomato products have also shown benefit against inflammation and markers of oxidative stress. They also show a protective effect on the inner layer of our blood vessels and may decrease the risk of blood clotting.
- Cancer Prevention
Observational studies have found links between tomatoes, tomato products, and fewer incidences of prostate-, lung- and stomach cancers. The high lycopene content is believed to be the main reason for these protective effects, but high quality human trials are needed to confirm this. A study in women shows that high concentrations of carotenoids, found in high amounts in tomatoes, may protect against the development of breast cancer.
- Skin health
Tomatoes are considered beneficial for skin health. Tomato-based foods rich in lycopene and other plant compounds may protect against sunburn. According to one study, there were 40% fewer sunburns after ingesting 40 grams of tomato paste (providing 16 mg of lycopene) with olive oil, every day for 10 weeks.
- Eye health
Tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene, lutein, and beta-carotene. These are powerful antioxidants that have been shown to protect the eyes against light-induced damage, the development of cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Automatic tomato weight grading machine adopts balance and lever principle.
