Bell pepper (or sweet pepper) is one of the most common vegetable crops in our country. It is unpretentious to watering, tolerates both high and low temperatures, bears fruit until frost, is little susceptible to pests ... all this makes bell peppers one of the favorite vegetables of our gardeners.

However, not everyone knows the beneficial properties of bell pepper. They are primarily due to the rich vitamin composition of this vegetable. It's no secret that 100 grams of its pulp contains 90 g of water, 1.2 g of protein, 0.3 g of fat and 5 g of healthy carbohydrates, as well as 3.5 g of fiber. The raw pulp of sweet pepper contains many vitamins (vitamins A, E, C, K, P, B vitamins, folic acid, biotin), macro- and microelements (potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, sulfur, phosphorus, chlorine, iron , manganese, iodine, copper, zinc, fluorine).
