Caring of the pepper plant in the field leads to a high value nutrition pepper on the plate!
Sweet peppers play a significant role in our diet. Like the tomato, bell peppers are botanical fruits but culinary vegetables. Pieces of bell pepper are commonly used in garden salads and as toppings on pizza or cheesesteaks. There are many varieties of stuffed peppers prepared using hollowed or halved bell peppers.
The most common colors of bell peppers are green, yellow, orange and red.

Speaking about healthy diet let’s check what the pepper fruits provide. 100 grams of bell pepper fruit contains nutrients of Calcium 10m, Chlorine 5,5 mg, Phosphorus 20mg, Magnesium 10mg, Potassium 175 mg apart of the Vitamins C, B6, K1, B9,E,A

The whole profile of the peppers includes:
• Water: 92%
• Protein: 1 gram
• Carbs: 6 grams
• Sugar: 4.2 grams
• Fiber: 2.1 grams
• Fat: 0.3 grams

Those mineral are derived from the pepper plants via photosynthesis.

So the right nutrition of the plant will result to fruits not only attractive from the market point of view but from the nutritional value point of view as well.

In this period of time in Almeria, Spain there are bell type crops in development. We at COMPO EXPERT support the nice work of the sun (promoter of the photosynthesis process) by helping the growers in the plant nutrition process. So our Experts pay attention to the needs of the plants by suggesting a complete crop nutrition plan based on a range of specialty products of NovaTec® Solub series in order to cover the needs in Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium and Calcium.
