Red palm oil, source of carotene, tomato oil, source of lycopene, both saturated with antioxidants

Red palm oil contains a lot of carotene, mainly beta-carotene; even up to 15 times more than carrots and easily 50 times more than tomatoes. Carotene is a natural sunscreen and has a strong anti-oxidative effect. The antioxidants are able to prevent, and even completely repair the damage caused by free radicals. Red palm oil is therefore strongly recommended for baking and frying.

Tomato puree, source of lycopene as well as carotene and source of antioxidants

Tomato puree is said to remove wrinkles and to quickly repair sunburn. It contains the powerful antioxidant lycopene, a type of carotenoids, which counters early ageing of the skin. For your daily recommended allowance of lycopene, 55 gr of tomato puree will suffice. Be sure to choose a high quality tomato puree. Besides lycopene, a can of tomato puree also contains a lot of vitamin A,B and C. Lycopene is better absorbed if you combine it with a fat; in this recipe, it's the red palm oil who takes on the role.
