DEGUSTE RDI Our RDI department is developing food and cosmetic products enriched with derivatives of our productions with the aim of diversifying our assortment and contributing with healthy products. At present, we have a research line related to LYCOPENE. LYCOPENE Lycopene is a natural vegetable pigment generated by certain plants and microorganisms which is especially abundant in tomatoes. Deguste has developed an extra virgin olive oil enriched with lycopene. Our RDI department has the world patent of an innovator method of extraction of this substance (fluid-mechanical system):      Without chemical solvents. Quicker. Energy consumption reduced. Moderated temperatures for extraction. Without residues.

Lycopene dissolved in oil is almost totally absorbed; however, just 1% of lycopene from fresh tomato is absorbed. Our Extra virgin olive oil with lycopene from tomatoes puts together the benefits of these two main pillars of the Mediterranean diet, giving the opportunity to bring the benefits of these two elements on our daily life in a very easy and simple way. LYCOPENE HEALTHY PROPERTIES       

Anti-ageing effect. Reduction of the cholesterol level. Strengthening of the immune system. Prevention against degenerative diseases. Improvement of the sperm quality. Prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Reduction of the risk of cancerous pathologies. USES Deguste Extra Virgin Olive oil with lycopene is suggested to be used in any recipe: salads, sauces, stews, aperitifs, baby food, baking or just simply on a toast as in the most traditional Mediterranean style.
