Capsicums, available in a multitude of colours, are an excellent source of vitamins A and C. This versatile vegetable can be stuffed, roasted, used in stir-fries or simply eaten raw.
Why Capsicum is good to eat:
- Capsicums are an excellent source of vitamin A and C (red contain more than green capsicums).
- They are also a good source of dietary fibre, vitamin E, B6 and folate.
- The sweetness of capsicums is due to their natural sugars (green capsicums have less sugar than red capsicums).
- Energy – 100 g of green capsicum supplies 90 kJ (105 kJ from red capsicum).
