According to a study conducted at the University of Barcelona, organic tomatoes contain higher levels of phenolic compounds than conventional tomatoes. Organic tomato juice and ketchup contain higher polyphenol content than juice and ketchup made from conventionally grown tomatoes. "Organic farming doesn't use nitrogenous fertilizers; as a result, plants respond by activating their own defense mechanisms, increasing the levels of all antioxidants," explains Anna Vallverdú Queralt. Researchers claim that more studies of clinical evidence are still needed to be able to state that organic products are truly better for our health than conventional ones.
