Tomato is among the most important diet source of bioactive substances such as carotenoids, especially lycopene, and phenolic compounds. The effect of industrial process parameters, in particular lethality (F100) and ºBrix, and of storage for a period up to 24 months at Troom on bioactive compounds content and activity of tomato sauce was investigated. Total phenolic and lycopene content were not affected by the considered industrial process parameters and remained significantly unchanged during storage conditions. The specific antioxidant power decreased appreciably in the first months of storage and after 24 months it diminished by 27%.
