Take the High Road to Vitamins & Fiber
Red bell peppers serve as a robust power plant of beneficial vitamins, antioxidants and phytonutrients such as carotenoids that assist our immune systems. Low in calories, the peppers are high in vitamins A and C, potassium and fiber. They’re also an excellent source of folic acid, which helps to prevent DNA changes that could lead to cancer. When it comes to your better health, red bell peppers earn “high” marks every time.
Crunching the Numbers
Get more than a mere mouthful in our handy snack packs, each containing about 1 ounce (30 grams) of dehydrated red bell pepper strips. That measures up to about 1 cup of dried product.
But that’s only half the story because this amount of dried red bell pepper strips equals about 3 cups of fresh bell pepper. So add ‘em up and eat ‘em up – every pack is filled with flavor that never wavers!

Spice Up Your Favorite Dishes
Red bell peppers spice up many otherwise mundane dishes. Mix them with corn and onions to spruce up a summer salad, slip them into a vegetable quiche or grill them with rosemary and garlic to create a scrumptious pita dip. Here’s a recipe with rice, peas and carrots that we especially like.
▫ 3 tbsp food grade shea butter or vegetable oil
▫ 1 large red onion, chopped
▫ 1 red bell pepper, seeded, chopped
▫ ½ cup peas
▫ 2⅓ cups long-grain white rice
▫ 1 tsp chili powder
▫ 3¾ cups low-salt chicken broth
▫ ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
Melt the butter in a large pot, over medium heat. Add onion, pepper and peas, then sauté for 12 minutes. Next, add rice, cumin and chili powder, then stir for one minute. Add broth and bring it to a boil, then cover the pot and lower your heat to medium low and simmer for about 25 minutes until the rice is tender and the broth reduced. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with cilantro and bon appetit!
