The aim of the work was to evaluate the change in antioxidant content with maturation stage in tomato berries under elevated salinity conditions. The examined antioxidants were lipoic acid, vitamin C and vitamin E. It was found that in the majority of berries examined the content of dihydrolipoic acid, reduced ascorbate and a-tocopherol increased with maturation. Furthermore, the interplay between them was shown. These results are of great importance also from nutritional and health point of view.
