The true healthy snack is here to stay
‘Mini’ or ‘baby’ fruits and vegetables are in fashion. There is no going back, and proof of this is the Sweet Bite pepper. The healthy snack revolution has begun, and our small peppers have the potential to become “king” of this new trend.
One can eat these small peppers raw, and like a sweet, they’re high in sweetness.
Sweet Bite Peppers are great eaten raw and like a sweet – they have a sweet, mild flavour and are perfectly snack-sized. They are a delicious alternative to other unhealthy snacks such as pastries, processed products, products that are too high in salt and/or sugar, soft drinks, etc. You can have them at work, in the car, in the office. It’s a healthy snack to stop yourself from getting hungry, and it’s great for children.
Because these peppers have high carotene content, they can help fight oxidative stress and reduce the risk of cancer. In addition, we can find them in three colours: red, yellow and orange. These add flavour and colour to salads. So what are you waiting to try them?

Pepper to protect your body
Peppers are vegetables with high water content and low caloric and fat intake; therefore, they can be included in our healthy diet. They’re also rich in vitamin A, essential to stay healthy and prevent various health problems, especially those linked to the immune system. Moreover, this vitamin is essential for the maintenance of normal mucous membranes, skin and vision.
Another vitamin that can be found in peppers is vitamin B6. This vitamin has been related to cardiovascular disease prevention, nausea and the production of antibodies, which are essential to be in good health and deal with any external agent. It also helps us break down protein and keep our blood sugar levels within healthy limits.
Vitamin C, present in many fruits and vegetables, is also essential for our body, and peppers are high in this vitamin. But why is Vitamin C so important? It helps with the proper functioning of the nervous and immune system, while reducing tiredness and fatigue.
