Orange bell peppers: the undisputed number one when it comes to supplying vitamin C - up to three times as much vitamin C as oranges. And they are absolutely brimming with other healthy goodness. As orange bell peppers contain lutein and zeaxanthin - substances that are important for the prevention of the eye disease macular degeneration - they are also great for your sight.


Good for your sight

Research has shown that the specific nutrients lutein and zeaxanthin - substances orange bell peppers are very rich in - influence the health of your eyes.

Lutein and zeaxanthin are colorants that our eyes need for protection against the harmful effects of UV radiation.

Together with the Goed voor Ogen foundation, we do all we can to help keep your eyes healthy!
