Other fatty acids in the oil include oleic acid which makes up 20% – 25% of the oil, palmitic acid (10% – 15%) and stearic acid (5%). Small amounts of linolenic acid and arachidic acid have also been reported.

Benefits Of Tomato Seed Oil

There is not much gone into the study and benefits of tomato seed oil so far , so what we have known so far we are stating it below

Tomato seed oil has strong antioxidant benefits.

This 2010 study tested the antioxidant benefits of tomato seed oil. It related most of the oil’s benefits to its lycopene isomers: all-trans-lycopene and cis-3-lycopene.

Another study from 2013 looked at the antioxidant capacity of the oil using four different tests. The results corroborated those obtained in the earlier studies. But it went further. It found tomato seed oil had a higher antioxidant capacity than pure lycopene.
