A small British company is planning to apply for U.S. permission to produce and sell purple tomatoes that have high levels of anthocyanins, compounds found in blueberries that some studies show lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. The Food and Drug Administration would have to approve any health claims used to sell the products. Cancer-fighting pink pineapples, heart-healthy purple tomatoes and less fatty vegetable oils may someday be on grocery shelves alongside more traditional products.

“I think we can do a better job of implementing early mobility therapies,” said Dr. D. Clark Files of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, who led the research and whose hospital is trying to get more critically ill patients up, ventilator and all.

The U.S. government approved nutritional labels for alcoholic beverages in 2013, but they’re voluntary. Diageo had long expressed interest in putting the information on its labels so it could appeal to consumers on low-carb diets. The company plans to seek approval for similar labeling in the European Union.
