Red Yellow Green Peppers Nutrients and Health Benefits

Sweet Bell PeppersHave you seen the Red, Yellow, and Green Bell Peppers in your local grocery stores? Have you ever bought them or used them for your meals? Well, I used them and sometimes still do for my soups, salads, or whatever I can use them in. I really like the taste of the red sweet bell pepper, then I’d say the yellow one is next in line of taste for me, and then the green one. What is kind of annoying to me is that the red ones are the most expensive ones in stores. For salads I would recommend fresh peppers, but for the soups or cooked meals I usually use the frozen ones that are already chopped into strips and the package I buy at Wal-Mart has all three colors in it.

These Bell Peppers are from species called Capsicum Annuum and are called sometimes as Sweet Peppers. Usually these peppers are Red, Yellow, or Green, but from time to time people can get or find an orange pepper or even a purple one. Bell Peppers taste kind of sweet and kind of bitter, the red ones seem to me a little sweeter than others. People from around the world cook these peppers in many different ways, some eat them fresh and alone without anything else, some enjoy them in fresh salads, some put them in stir fry dishes or soups, and some stuff them with ground meat and cook them that way to enjoy it later.

Here is the interesting parts of these Sweet Bell Peppers, one large Red Pepper (164 grams) has 103% of Daily Value for Vitamin A and 349% of Daily Value for Vitamin C. One large Yellow Pepper (186 grams) has an amazing amount of 569% of Daily Value for Vitamin C. The Green Pepper (164 grams) has 220% of Daily Value for Vitamin C. So, I would recommend to use the Red Bell Pepper more often if you need to increase the Vitamins A and C in your body, but best of all is to use all three kinds of peppers. All three peppers together have a much better effect on your health improvement, because they are in different colors which is very important for our bodies and they have different upper and lower amounts of Nutrients between each other which together works a an awesome health boost. Below I provided the Nutrients and Health Benefits of each kind/color of Sweet Bell Pepper, so you can compare them to each other and decide what you are going to use in your next salad, soup, or whatever it is that you want to make with these beautiful healthy peppers.
