The united states department of agriculture (USDA) has finally licensed a nutritionally enriched purple tomato after more than 10 years of study and development.
When compared to other types, gene-edited tomatoes can produce up to 10 times as much anthocyanin called an antioxidant which help delay damage cells.
Red cabbage and blueberries have a purple pigment in them due to anthocyanin which is useful for a healthy body and skin.
Purple tomatoes can help reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease, just like blueberries do.
According to the study, mice who suffered from cancer were fed on anthocyanin enriched tomatoes and lived 30% longer than other mice.
