Question: at what temperature is lycopene activated in tomatoes? how hot do tomatoes have to get for the lycopene to activate? and if the tomatoe cools down, is the lycopene still active?

Answer: It was allways to my understanding that the best way to get the valuable nutrients from a vegetable was to eat it raw. Like slices on a sandwich or on the side. Not sure though on what happens when they are cooked .
