Do you Like to Consume Bell Pepper?

Fig 01- A red bell pepper

I often eat bell pepper, but not every day, because I love its sweetly taste. No, bell peppers do not like other peppers in respect to spicy.

No capsaicin in bell peppers, hence they are lower position at the Scoville scale, the scale to measure the spiciness of chili peppers.

Just to let you know, the range of Scoville spiciness or hot scale:

- 100 to 2,500, categorized as mild
- 2,500 to 30,000, medium
- 30,000 to 100,000, hot
- 100,000 to 300,000, extra hot
- over 300,000, called as extremely hot.

In addition to bell peppers, other chilies include in lower Scoville scale are:

- Lombardo chili
- Anaheim pepper
- Golden Greek pepper
- Ancho poblano pepper

As reported by Jeff Csatari (published in EatThis, NotThat, April 29, 2021) that plenty of benefits to consume bell peppers.

I just quote some benefits from above article:

- depression prevention
- increasing metabolism and fat burning
- reducing risk of heart diseases
- healthier teeth
- weight loss
- less inflamation
- better vision

From above benefits, depression prevention is the most interesting to me. Bell peppers contain “mood boosting” nutrients such as:

- long-chain omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA)
- Folate
- iron
- magnesium
- potassium
- selenium
- thiamine

Finally, do you consume bell peppers? How often?

  14. Tanza, I know that bell peppers are good for one's health, but I can't stand them...even more so when they're cooked. The smell kills me and I don't like the flavor either. I do eat and enjoy jalapenos and some other chili peppers. Tabasco is my favorite condiment! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  17. Sometimes I do put them in a salad or in other dish but I don't eat them much because I am also allergic to them. Sometimes I do eat sometimes the yellow ones. They are sweeter.
