Jalapeños

Jalapeños are medium-sized chili peppers. A mature jalapeño fruit is 2–3½ inches long and is commonly picked and consumed while still green. These small, fiery green peppers provide multiple vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to support a healthy body. With 109 mg of vitamin C, one jalapeno provides more than a day’s worth of this important nutrient. Vitamin C is essential to healthy tissue repair, and it acts as an antioxidant to help with immunity and to fight the effects of aging. One jalapeno also provides 6.4 micrograms of vitamin K and 530 international units of vitamin A. Jalapenos are also a minor source of vitamin E and most of the B complex of vitamins.
