A wonderful combination of tangy taste and crunchy texture. Capsicums have been cultivated for more than 9000 years,with the earliest cultivation having taken place in South and Central America. As a food that is rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients,capsicums provide us with important anti-cancer benefits. To maximize the availability of vitaminC and carotenoids from capsicum allow this amazing vegetable to ripen. Recent studies have shown that the vitaminC content and the carotenoid content ofcapsicums both increase with ripening. When these increase,so does their total antioxidant capacity,which can be a source of great health benefits.
