Bell Pepper


Named for their shape, these peppers come in a variety of vibrant colours, with a fresh, crunchy texture. They're commonly used in Mediterranean and South American dishes as a versatile, flavoursome veg.

They're packed with vitamins, especially vitamin C. They also have a great number of antioxidants, especially a group called carotenoids like lutein and zeaxanthin associated with eye health.
