In the USDA Nutrient Database for both raw and sun dried tomatoes, 19 grams of raw tomato have 489 mcg of Lycopene and 19 grams of sun dried tomatoes have 7747 mcg of Lycopene. According to this data a standard sun dried tomato actually has 15-16 times more Lycopene than a raw tomato.  Lycopene is a phytochemical and proven antioxidant that fights free radicals in the body. Recent studies show that a tomato rich diet is associated with a reduced risk of certain conditions including; prostate cancer, digestive disorders, breast, lung and cervical cancer, and heart disease."
