THESE 6 FOODS THAT CONTAIN MORE VITAMIN C THAN ORANGES
Often vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is associated with orange. But if this citrus brings a significant dose to our body (47.5 mg per 100 g), other fruits and vegetables contain more. Here are six to favor in our diet.
An exotic fruit that is sometimes rare on the stalls of our French markets, the guava contains per 100 g more than 220 mg of vitamin C. Low in sugar, but rich in fiber , it can be consumed in the form of juice, and we will help boost our body as well as strengthen our immune defenses.
2 RED PEPPER
Provided with minerals and vitamin A, red pepper, which can preferably be added raw in salads, contains three times more vitamin C than orange, i.e. 121 mg per 100 g. We also do not hesitate to buy yellow and green peppers which remain well ranked among the foods richest in ascorbic acid.
Due to its high nutrient content, this red fruit is considered a “super food”. For 100 g of berries consumed, the vitamin C intake is 180 mg. It can therefore be enjoyed fresh or with cereals or yogurt for breakfast.
4 FRESH PARSLEY
We do not skimp on this herbaceous plant when we spend in the kitchen. Especially when the ANSES (National Food Safety Agency) reveals that it contains 177 mg per 100 g.
5 THE KIWI
With more than 90 mg per 100 g, this fruit is certainly small in size, but essential when it comes to its vitamin C content. When fatigue is felt, especially in this winter season, we rush to the kiwi, which is also recommended in case of slimming diet because it is a low calorie fruit.
6 THE STRAWBERRIES
Gariguette, mara des bois, charlotte…All varieties of strawberries are rich in vitamin C. They contain an average of 58.8 mg per 100 g serving. And the good news is that they are very low in calories. They are eaten in salads with a little sugar or in cream pastries.
