Chillies are rich in vitamin C, beta carotene (which the body converts to vitamin A) and dietary fibre. However, their fiery flavour means we usually consume them only in small quantities.
Even 10g of chilli will provide half the day's requirement for vitamin C. This vitamin plays a role in the body’s immune system.
