  7. Asparagus
  8. Liver

  10. Red cabbage

Lycopene is insoluble in water and dissolves only in organic solvents and oils.

You may have noticed if preparing tomato sauce with a white apron on splashes of tomato from the simmering pot will stain fabric unless rinsed and washed while it is still a fresh stain.  But if using a white ice cream contain to store ready-made tomato sauce or soup, then the container will stain and be white again.  This is why tomato sauce containers are either made of glass or red colored plastic.

Because of the insoluble in water structure, lycopene in food preparations will stain porous material, including fabrics, plastics and timber. While a tomato sauce stain can be removed from fabric. Lycopene diffuses into plastic, making it impossible to remove with detergent and water.
