Introduction: The polyphenols are secondary metabolites of S. lycopersicum that act against the oxidative stress and they diminish free radicals, which cause degenerative illnesses in the man. In this plant, favourable results have been obtained in their yield, quality and in the metabolites synthesis when being used magnetic treatment during their cultivation. The objective of the research was to determine the present polyphenols in the fruits of S. lycopersicum irrigated with static magnetic field of 150 mT with view to its employment as nutraceutic. Material and Methods: An experimental design was used totally randomized with two treatments. The plants of the treatment control were irrigated with normal water and in the other treatment with static magnetic field of 150 mT. To the mature fruits, they were carried out the polyphenols extraction with ethanol (80%). The high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)-diode array detection (DAD) procedure to obtain the polyphenols profile was used. As confirmative analysis by high performance liquid chromatography with mass spectrometry detection (HPLC-PDA-MS/MS) was employed. Results: In the two treatments the polyphenols were identified: caffeic, coumaric, gallic, chlorogenic and ferulic; besides the flavonoids rutin and catequine. The presence was ratified of each one of the certain polyphenols, considering the molecular mass of the precursory ion and its time of retention. The ionic products and the collision energy were obtained for each compound and in some cases, it coincides with the literature. The identified polyphenols contributes significantly in the total antioxidant capacity in synergy with carotenes and vitamins. Conclusions: These results indicate that the polyphenols presence in the S. lycopersicum fruits is not affected significantly by the irrigation of the plants with treatment of static magnetic field of 150 mT. For such a reason the pharmacological properties these compounds could be evaluated in the antioxidant defence of the human organism.
