At our Vito’s restaurants we use farm fresh grown tomatoes from our farm in South Windsor. Fresh vegetables and ingredients are the best option not only for cooking but also for the nutrients and benefits of eating fresh, farm grown food.
Did you know that tomato studies have shown that people who regularly eat tomatoes, have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease along with other chronic diseases? Tomatoes are high in vitamin A and C, beta carotene and minerals. They also benefit high blood pressure, the function of the pancreas and improve circulation in the body. Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C and have been known to help reduce asthma attacks and respiratory infections.
