Ramafrut currently produces four different varieties of pepper: Italian peppers, red peppers, green peppers and mild chili peppers. These peppers are all grown in Spain in four different areas and are available 12 months a year.
Peppers are rich in betacarotene and are an excellent source of vitamin C, which is essential to preserve connective tissue, cure cuts and prevent infectious viral diseases.
In fact, green peppers have twice as much vitamin C as oranges whilst red peppers have three times as much. They have diuretic properties and help to eliminate body fluids thanks to their high potassium content and low sodium count. They are beneficial in reducing high blood pressure, gout, kidney stones and heart disease which all require low sodium diets.
