BENEFITS OF TOMATO AND TOMATO PRODUCTS

  • Cancer: As an excellent source of the strong antioxidant vitamin C and other antioxidants, tomatoes can help combat the formation of free radicals known to cause cancer.
  • Blood pressure: Maintaining a low sodium intake is essential to lowering blood pressure, however increasing potassium intake may be just as important because of its vasodilation effects.
  • Antioxidants: The process of making tomato paste makes some of the antioxidants in tomatoes more bioavailable. Antioxidants are compounds that scavenge free radicals in the body associated with disease and aging.
  • Heart health: The fiber, potassium, vitamin C and choline content in tomatoes all support heart health.
  • Diabetes: Studies have shown that type 1 diabetics who consume high-fiber diets have lower blood glucose levels and type 2 diabetics may have improved blood sugar, lipids and insulin levels. One cup of cherry tomatoes provides about 2 grams of fiber.
  • Skin: Collagen, the skins support system, is reliant on vitamin C as an essential nutrient that works in our bodies as an antioxidant to help prevent damage caused by the sun, pollution and smoke, smooth wrinkles and improve overall skin texture.
  • Constipation: Eating foods that are high in water content and fiber like tomatoes can help to keep you hydrated and your bowel movements regular. Fiber is essential for minimizing constipation and adding bulk to the stool.
  • Pregnancy: Adequate folic acid intake is essential for pregnant women to protect against neural tube defects in infants.
  • Depression: The folic acid in tomatoes may also help with depression by preventing an excess of homocysteine from forming in the body, which can prevent blood and other nutrients from reaching the brain.

Lycopene;

Lycopene is a naturally occurring chemical that gives fruits and vegetables a red color. It is one of a number of pigments called carotenoids. Lycopene is found in watermelons, pink grapefruits, apricots, and pink guavas. It is found in particularly high amounts in tomatoes and tomato products like ketchup, tomato paste, processed tomato products, and red pepper. 

Researchers showed that lycopene is absorbed much easier and faster in the processed tomato products like ketchup, tomato paste and puree, tomato sauces, than the natural fresh tomato, from which lycopene is partially absorbed. Due to the increased sectional area of the processed tomato as a result of processing which causes the significant decrease of particle size, the digestion process would be much faster, and therefore the absorption of lycopene would be much easier and efficient. It is recommended to consume the foods containing lycopene with oil, or fat, since lycopene is soluble in fat, and therefore, the efficiency of getting benefits from its presence increases.

Handmade Triangle Pastry Leaves (Yufka - 28pc)

Omur     400g.
$3.99
Turkish yufka is the light thin pastry dough widely used in Turkish, Greek, Balkan and Middle Eastern cuisine. With roots in Ottoman Era Turkey, yufka is the traditional dough for böreks (bureks or bourekas), large spiral family-sized pies or smaller triangular and cigar-shaped pastries filled with savory or sweet preparations. Yufka is also the required dough for the classic honey and chopped nut-based dessert, baklava and its sister bülbül yuvasi (Turkish Nightingale's Nest). At Ömür, our Square Yufka Pastry Leaves are made by hand, a true rarity, using a classic Turkish recipe. If you’re making savory böreks, the traditional fillings are spinach, spinach and cheese or potato. Yufka is a bit thicker than traditional phyllo and a bit thinner than a tortilla. As such, it makes a perfect base for flatbreads, pizzas and flat savory pies. In Turkey, the mouthwatering traditional breakfast and street food staple, gözleme, is made with yufka. The Turkish equivalent to a quesadilla, gözlemes are often topped with combinations of ground beef, spinach, cheese, potato and fresh herbs – and then folded over and grilled in a griddle pan. Ömür Square Yufka Pastry Leaves contain no preservatives and because our pastry leaves are very low in fat and cholesterol free, they are a healthier alternative to puff pastry.

Extra Fine Bulgur

Duru     1kg.
$3.99
It is a very valuable and nutritious semi-finished foodstuff that only composes of water and wheat and that is obtained by cleaning, boiling, drying the wheat and grinding it in different kinds of mills after removing its peel and classifying it according to grain sizes. Grain group is an important and economical carbohydrate source that is located at the bottom of the nutrition pyramid. Cracked wheat is a valuable foodstuff that belongs to the grain group. In order to understand the cracked wheat well, its main raw material wheat should firstly be understood. Wheat composes of 3 sections, which are core, bran and endosperm. Most of the nutritional components are found in the core and bran sections. Endosperm is the section that gives energy with its starch and small amount of protein. The core and bran of the wheat contain minerals such as zinc, magnesium and chrome; diet sediment, some phenols, phytates and selenium as well as all B vitamins except B12. THE DIFFERENCE OF BULGUR Generally in products made of wheat, micronutrients in core and bran sections are separated during wheat processing and the only section that reaches to us is the one that gives energy just like white bread. However, bulgur can exactly be defined as full grain because wheat is not grinded during the bulgur production and a product, in which protein, vitamin, mineral, and diet sediment amount is higher, is obtained. Furthermore, bulgur can be considered as healthier among similar foodstuff, as its glycemic index is lower than macaroni and rice. Briefly, bulgur is a very valuable foodstuff that is rich in terms of sediment and fibers, has low carbohydrate values and high protein values. BENEFITS OF BULGUR Containing very high amount of fibers, bulgur is very important for intestinal activities. Furthermore, cracked wheat has a significant role in weight control, as it has a filling feature. According to World Health Organization, our daily fiber need is around 25-30 gr. We can easily cover this need by having one serving of bulgur. B1 vitamins it contains play a significant role in strengthening our nervous and digestive systems. Moreover, this vitamin should regularly be consumed in order to prevent beriberi disease. Additionally, bulgur is extremely necessary to improve the intelligence level of the babies of pregnant women, as it also contains folic acid. Bulgur makes you feel full for a long time and is a product that can be used in diets for its glycemic index is low and it slowly flows into blood. It is also recommended for diabetic patients. Moreover, it offers a variety, as it can be used in many meals such as salads, hot and cold meals.
