Tips & Notes
Bell peppers are the Christmas ornaments of the vegetable world with beautifully shaped glossy exteriors that are available in a wide array of vivid colors ranging from green, red, yellow, orange, purple, brown to black. Despite their varied palette, all are the same plant. Sweet peppers are plump, bell-shaped vegetables featuring either three or four lobes. Green and purple peppers have a slightly bitter flavor, while the red, orange and yellows are sweeter and almost fruity.
Bell peppers not only are an excellent source of carotenoids, but also a source of more than 30 different members of the carotenoid nutrient family.
The lack of “heat” or significant amounts of capsaicin in bell peppers does not mean that this vegetable should be denied the health research spotlight.
The actual nutrient and phytonutrient content of bell peppers is impressive, and also somewhat surprising given the very low-fat nature of this vegetable. There is far less than 1 gram of total fat in one cup of sliced bell pepper. However, this very small amount of fat is enough to provide a reliable storage spot for bell pepper’s fat-soluble nutrients, including its fat-soluble carotenoids and vitamin E. Both of these carotenoids provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory health benefits.
