The Great Nutrition of Jalapenos

If you like spicy foods, you’re probably a fan of the jalapeno. This pepper, native to the Americas, has developed such a robust following that it has been embraced by culinary traditions all throughout the globe. You can even experience the great taste and strong nutritional value of the jalapeno at our Bothell Japanese restaurant.

It only takes a hundred gram serving of jalapenos to get a healthy dose of many valuable vitamins and minerals. Most notable is its vitamin C content, which amounts to about 143% of your daily recommended intake. You also get 32% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin B6, 24% of your vitamin E, and 18% of your vitamin K. It also gives you smaller amounts of vitamin A, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, potassium, and folate, as well as trace degrees of iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc.

You can get more jalapeno in your diet with the help of our cancun roll, our New Mexico roll, our summer roll, our airbender, our firebender or one of the other many delicious options at Sushi Hana.
