We aimed to verify the beneficial effects of processed tomato ketchup prepared in the laboratory on hypolipidemic subjects with hyperlipidemia condition. Using purposive sampling technique, 90 diabetic subjects between 35 - 55 years of age group, BMI levels falls between 18.5 - 34.9 (kg/m2) were selected for the study and the total sample is divided under two experimental groups with 30 subjects under each group, supplemented with pure lycopene gel capsule and tomato powder respectively, and the remaining 30 subjects placed under control group without any intervention and the study was carried out for a period of 3 months. The parameters like physic - chemical analysis shows that the samples were superior safe during storage and nutrient analysis shows that the tomato powder was nutritionally rich and lycopene content was very high. The effects of tomato products on fasting and post prandial blood sugar levels showed that they were found to be decreased significantly at 1% level and 5% level after supplementation.
