Short Description : Kissan Tomato Ketchup Tomato Sauce Pouch
Tomato sauce does wonders for the flavor of a plate of spaghetti or a slice of pizza, but the red sauce also provides essential nutrients. A cup of tomato sauce contains a quarter of your recommended daily intake of vitamin A and fulfills half of your daily need for vitamin C. Tomatoes are also naturally rich in the antioxidant lycopene. Depending on how it's prepared, tomato sauce also provides fiber.
Whether whole or as a sauce, tomatoes are rich in vitamins A, C and K. Your body needs vitamin A for maintaining low-light vision and for building connective tissues under the skin. Vitamin C fills multiple roles within your body, including keeping your teeth and gums healthy, speeding wound healing, metabolizing fats, and absorbing other vitamins and minerals. Vitamin K affects blood clotting. The potassium and manganese in tomatoes help your body build stronger bones and stave off the muscle cramps you could get from low levels of these minerals.
Tomato sauce contains about 100 calories per cup but adds a great deal of flavor to food. Compared with cream-based sauces that contain many times as many calories per cup, tomato sauce is a lean and nutritious option. Pure tomato sauce contains no fat and approximately 20 grams of carbohydrates per cup, so tomato sauce fits easily into a low-fat diet and fairly well into a low-carbohydrate plan.
