Provided with minerals and vitamin A, the red pepper, which can preferably be added raw in salads, contains three times more vitamin C than the orange, that is, 121 mg per 100 g. We also do not hesitate to buy yellow and green bell peppers that remain well ranked among the foods richest in ascorbic acid.
