A few facts about Chilli Peppers you might not know. Not only are they delicious, but the are also damn good for you!!!
Fresh chilli peppers, red or green, are rich sources of vitamin-C. 100gm fresh chilli provides approx. 143.7mcg - about 240% of RDA.
They are also good in other antioxidants like vitamin A, and flvonoids like beta carotene, alpha carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and cryptoxanthins. These antioxidant substances in capsicum helps to protect the body from injurious effects of free radicals generated during stress and disease conditions. Chillies contain good amounts of minerals such as potassium, manganese, iron and magnesium. Chillies are also good in B-complex groups of vitamins, such as niacin, pyridoxine (vitamin B-6), riboflavin and thiamine (B-1).
Capsicum species are members of the family Solanaceae, or the nightshade family, a large, economically important family that also includes eggplant, petunia, potato, tobacco, and tomato. They are not related to black pepper, Piper nigrum, nor are they related to the Guinea pepper or grains of paradise, Aframomum melegueta.
