LivFit Functional Facts:

Red capsicums have very high levels of vitamin C and yellow and green capsicums have nearly as much. Red capsicum contains about 2 teaspoons of natural sugar, making them much more pleasing to the taste buds. The green variety have little sugar and so taste a little more bitter.
