Nutritional Benefits: 

Crunchy green vitamins

Green Earthbound Farm Organic Bell Peppers are an excellent source of vitamins A and C,  and a good source of vitamins B6 and K.  It’s hard to find another vegetable with more vitamin C than bell peppers. This vitamin promotes wound healing, supports the immune system, aids in skin health, and also acts as an antioxidant.  As part of a healthy diet, vitamin C’s antioxidant properties may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases.

To maximize your nutrient intake, try pairing green bell peppers with produce that contains iron, like spinach, as vitamin C helps the body absorb plant-based iron.
 

Why choose organic bell peppers?

Sweet bell peppers are #7 on the Environmental Working Group's "Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce," a list of produce that carries the most pesticide residues when grown conventionally — so choosing organic bell peppers makes sense. You can lower your dietary exposure to pesticides substantially by avoiding the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables, and choosing organic for those items instead.

An added bonus: organic peppers aren’t waxed, while many conventionally grown bell peppers are coated with a petroleum-based fungicide wax to prolong their shelf life.

At Earthbound Farm, we grow our organic bell peppers using sustainable methods that build rich soil, support vibrant field ecosystems, and keep potentially hazardous chemicals out of our environment and our food supply. We believe organic is the healthiest choice for people and the planet, and we think organic tastes better, too!

WhatsOnMyFood.org from the Pesticide Action Network shows you searchable results for vegetables like sweet bell peppers and a wide range of other organic and conventional foods. It’s an easy-to-use and empowering tool for learning about pesticide residues and their health effects for all of us.
