In order to investigate whether the angiotensin converting enzyme-inhibitory tomato extract Fruitflow® would lower blood pressure after consumption, we conducted a randomised, double-blinded, placebo-controlled human intervention study, involving 12 pre-hypertensive people in a crossover design. Consuming a single dose of 150 mg Fruitflow® resulted in a significant reduction in 24-hour average blood pressure as well as average wake-period and sleep-period SBP, compared to placebo. Other parameters related to blood pressure, such as 24-hour average mean arterial pressure, pulse pressure, heart rate, central aortic systolic pressure and radial augmentation index were also reduced...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Increasing numbers of food ingredients are gaining acknowledgement, via regulated health claims, of benefits to human health. One such is a water-soluble tomato extract, Fruitflow (FF), a dietary antiplatelet. We examined relative platelet responses to FF and to 75 mg aspirin (ASA) in healthy subjects. SUBJECTS/METHODS: A total of 47 healthy subjects completed a double-blinded randomised controlled trial following a crossover design. Acute and 7-day treatments with 75 mg ASA were compared with control with and without concomitant FF, over a 5-h timecourse...

REVIEW
Niamh O'Kennedy, Daniel Raederstorff, Asim K Duttaroy
Hyperactive platelets, in addition to their roles in thrombosis, are also important mediators of atherogenesis. Antiplatelet drugs are not suitable for use where risk of a cardiovascular event is relatively low. It is therefore important to find alternative safe antiplatelet inhibitors for the vulnerable population who has hyperactive platelets in order to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Potent antiplatelet factors were identified in water-soluble tomato extract (Fruitflow(®)), which significantly inhibited platelet aggregation...

PURPOSE: To investigate the presence of anti-angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) factors in aqueous extract of tomato. METHODS: The bio-guided fractionation of the aqueous extract of tomato produced a sugar-free, heat-stable fraction with molecular mass <1,000 Da from tomatoes. The sugar-free tomato extract (TE) was tested for its anti-ACE activity using human plasma and rabbit lung pure ACE. In addition, its effect on human platelet aggregation induced by ADP, collagen or arachidonic acid was determined...
