The Plentiful Nutrition of Jalapeno Peppers

Ever since the jalapeno made its way out from its native lands in South America, it has been embraced by chefs and diners throughout the world. This king of peppers is beloved not only for its power to add a bit of spice to a meal, but also its valuable nutritional benefits.

When you eat jalapenos, you’re getting a wide variety of important vitamins and minerals. When you need vitamin C to boost your immune system, it takes only 100 grams of jalapeno to get 143% of your daily recommended value. On top of this, you’re simultaneously getting 32% of your vitamin B6, 24% of your vitamin E, 18% of your vitamin K, and lesser servings of vitamin A, niacin, potassium, riboflavin, thiamine, folate, calcium magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and zinc.

If you want to mix the great taste and nutrition of jalapenos in with a quality sushi meal, come to Wild Wasabi in Lynnwood for one of our spicy vegetable rolls, made with jalapeno, lettuce, avocado, kaiware, gobo, and spicy mayo.
