Frequently Asked Questions

Which are the most vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables?

Provitamin A is especially abundant in vegetables and fruit coloured yellow, red or green (carrots, spinach, watercress, cabbage, mangoes, apricots…). Vitamin C, by comparison, goes hand in hand with high levels of acidity (blackberries, guava, parsley, peppers, kiwis, lemon and other citrus fruit …). That is why it is important to vary fruit consumption.

Generally speaking, the vitamins are found in the most highly-coloured parts of fruit and vegetables (the most green lettuce leaves).
