A group of scientists has been working with the new tomato for almost 20 years

The United States Department of Agriculture has approved the production of genetically modified purple tomatoes. The department claims that the new product not only stores better than its red predecessor, but is also much more usable. cnn.

A group of scientists worked with the new tomato for almost 20 years. It’s hard to say exactly why. The new tomato tastes just like a tomato, the smell, they say, is also the same, it has no particular resistance to various pests and diseases. The only difference is the color.

Breeders, of course, claim that their brainchild is more useful than the red prototype, but this is debatable to say the least.

According to geneticists, purple tomatoes are high in anthocyanins (colored plant glycosides). The same as in the composition of black currant, blueberry, blackberry or eggplant. It is with the presence of anthocyanins that the benefits of purple tomatoes are said to be associated – scientists claim that these substances are powerful antioxidants that protect the body against cancer and reduce the risk of premature aging.

Although none of the researchers was able to answer the question of why they can’t just eat eggplant and blueberries instead of new GMO tomatoes as a preventive measure.
