Colorful • Flavorful • Versatile | Healthy for Humans & Dogs
Native to Central and South America, bell peppers begin green and then ripen to bright red. The unripe green peppers are slightly bitter with a grassy flavor; fully-ripened red peppers are sweet and fruity. Green and red bell peppers pair well with each other, and also with tomato and onion.
Bell peppers are exceptionally rich in immune-supportive vitamin C, along with a variety of other antioxidants such as quercetin, Lutein, capsanthin, and Luteolin which all support aspects of health. They are also loaded with vitamins B6, K1, E, and A, as well as potassium and folate. Sweet red peppers pack the most nutrition with almost eleven times more beta-carotene and one-and-a-half times more vitamin C(1).
We supply three varieties of dehydrated peppers: air-dried green, red, and field run, which is a colorful mix of red and green. All varieties of dried peppers are available in several cuts and can be added to virtually any savory dish. Add them as an ingredient in soups, dips, “just add egg” products, vegan nacho cheese and seasoning, plant-based sausages, and more. Bell peppers also make a healthy addition to dog food and provide furry friends with the same nutritional support as humans(2).
