For the first cold days it is important to consume lots of fruit and vegetables rich in the nutrients we need most. Valentina Bolli, dietician, explains why vitamin C is important and where to find it.
Arugula boasts a quantity similar to that of peppers and also has the advantage of being eaten raw. In addition to containing vitamins A and E.
Clementines, citrus fruits hybrid between mandarins and sweet oranges , contain doses of vitamin C slightly higher than those of oranges (54 mg per 100 g of citrus fruits) and are also less caloric than mandarins.
Kiwis are rich in vitamin C, contain 85 mg per 100 g of fruit and are also an excellent source of fiber that is beneficial for the intestine. At the same time they contain a good amount of potassium and are therefore suitable for athletes .
Surprisingly, the primacy goes to the guava , a tropical fruit of the Myrtaceae family with a taste between sweetish and acidic. Popular in India but little known in Italy, guava contains 243 mg per 100 g of product, as well as being an excellent source of magnesium, potassium, calcium, copper and phosphorus. A little more difficult to find, but very interesting for our health to know.
