Lycopene is a member of the carotenoid family of chemical
substances. Lycopene, similar to other carotenoids, is a natural
fat-soluble pigment (red, in the case of lycopene) found in certain
plants and microorganisms, where it serves as an accessory
light-gathering pigment and to protect these organisms against the
toxic effects of oxygen and light. Lycopene may also protect humans
against certain disorders, such as prostate cancer and perhaps some
other cancers, and coronary heart disease.
Carotenoids are the principal pigments responsible for the colors
of vegetables and fruits (see Beta-Carotene and Lutein and
Zeaxanthin). Lycopene is responsible for the red color of red
tomatoes. In addition to tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum) and
tomato-based products, such as ketchup, pizza sauce, tomato juice
and tomato paste, lycopene is also found in watermelon, papaya,
pink grapefruit and pink guava. Processed tomato products are more
available dietary sources of lycopene than fresh tomatoes. The
average daily intake of lycopene is approximately 25 milligrams,
with 50% of this in the form of processed tomato products.
Lycopene is an acyclic isomer of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene,
which contains beta-ionone rings at each end of the molecule, is
formed in plants, including tomatoes, via the action of the enzyme
lycopene beta-cyclase. Lycopene is a 40 carbon atom, open chain
polyisoprenoid with 11 conjugated double bonds.
