Omega 3 in Red Bell Peppers

edited December 2021 in General Nutrition

Hello !

Cronometer databases refers that 100 gr Red Bell Peppers have 0.1 g of omega 3.

However, USDA refers that they have 0.75 g of omega 3

Why is this large and significant difference ?

Thank you for your time

  • Hi JohnLas,

    Good question! Peppers, sweet, red, sauteed are cooked in added fat - that's where the extra omega-3 is coming from. We've got that one in our database too! Search for "Peppers, Sweet, Red, Sauteed" to add it to your diary.
