Spicy and flavorful, these Organic Jalapeños are perfect for adding a bit of heat to your favorite spicy curries or Mexican dishes.
Jalapeños are rich in vitamins A and C and potassium. They also have carotene -- an antioxidant that may help fight damage to your cells – as well as folate, vitamin K, and B vitamins. Many of their health benefits come from a compound called capsaicin. That's what makes the peppers spicy.
You may have heard that spicy food helps you drop extra pounds. While peppers aren't a silver bullet for slimming down, studies show that eating them regularly can speed up metabolism, help burn fat, and curb your appetite. Eating chili peppers before a high-carb meal may also help prevent blood sugar spikes.
