Default The Mediterranean Secret of a Healthy Heart - Sofrito

Quote:
The Mediterranean secret to longevity and a healthy heart is down to a simple tomato sauce, researchers believe.
Sofrito - made out of tomato as the main ingredient along with onion, olive oil, corn flour and occasionally garlic - is eaten widely around the Med but scientists could help prevent a heart attack or stroke.



Spanish researchers have found that tomato-based sauce contains as many as 40 antioxidants, called polyphenols, which are believed to protect the heart from 'oxidative stress'.
