Peppers provide more than heat and taste to foods. They also pack a powerful punch when it comes to being a good source of antioxidant vitamins A and C. Green peppers have twice the amount of vitamin C by weight than citrus fruits, and are a very good source of fibre, folate, and vitamin K. Red bell peppers are simply ripened green peppers that have three times as much vitamin C as the green varieties and eleven times more beta carotene. Red peppers, like tomatoes, are one of the few foods that contain lycopene. They are also an excellent source of vitamin B6 and contain beneficial phytonutrients, lutein and zeaxanthin.
