The Nutritional Value of Jalapenos

The world loves jalapenos. This classic pepper has been a big favorite for cultures throughout the globe ever since it made its way out of its native land in South America, solidifying a presence in many culinary traditions. Japanese food has proven to be no exception, with jalapenos appearing in a number of fusion-style rolls.

In addition to being delicious, jalapenos boast a strong supply of many valuable vitamins and minerals. A serving of only 100 grams of the peppers supplies you with over 140% of your daily recommended vitamin C supply. It also features 32% of your daily recommended serving of vitamin B6, 18% of your vitamin K, and 24% of your vitamin E. Finally, it gives you a modest serving of niacin, thiamine, vitamin A, riboflavin, potassium, and folate, along with minor amounts of magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, and iron.

If you’re looking for a way to combine the great taste and superior nutrition of jalapenos with a quality sushi dining experience, come to our Issaquah sushi restaurant for a heart attack roll, a king dragon roll, or the “I need the bottle water” roll.
