Jalapeno Peppers

 Buy TN Produce from Double Deuce Produce. Our organic jalapeno peppers are in and ready for picking.

Cooking reduces the heat of jalapeno peppers. While it would be rare to eat a whole jalapeno pepper, sliced and diced jalapenos make a spicy addition to tomato and mango salsas, nachos, black and pinto beans and corn-based dishes. If you like your food hot, leave more of the inner white membrane on the chopped pepper, as that is where most of the capsaicin is concentrated. You can also roast jalapenos and other chili peppers, which imparts a smoky flavor.

Benefits of the Cherry Tomato

Cherry tomatoes are miniature versions of traditional beefsteak tomatoes, but they are equally as nutritious. In addition to the 1.3 grams of protein, 1.8 grams of fiber and 20 milligrams of vitamin C in 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, you also get a healthy dose of other vitamins and minerals essential for good health.

 A cup of cherry tomatoes contains 27 calories.


Vitamin B-6

If you're under the age of 50, you need 1.3 milligrams of vitamin B-6 per day, and after 50 you should get 1.5 to 1.7 milligrams of the essential vitamin. A 1-cup serving of cherry tomatoes provides 0.11 milligrams toward these goals. Vitamin B-6 helps your body metabolize protein and supports cognitive development and brain function. The nutrient aids in producing red blood cells and immune function as well.

Vitamin A

A 1-cup serving of cherry tomatoes supplies 63 micrograms of the 700 micrograms of vitamin A women need each day and the 900 micrograms men require on a daily basis. Vitamin A keeps your eyes working properly. You might have an increased resistance to age-related macular degeneration when you get sufficient amounts of vitamin A, according to the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements. The vitamin aids your body in producing white blood cells and keeps your heart, lungs and kidneys working properly.

Health Benefits

Cherry tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant that lowers your risk of certain diseases caused by cellular damage. A 2000 article published in the "Canadian Medical Association Journal" notes that lycopene can decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. Cherry tomatoes can have more far-reaching health benefits as well. The compounds in cherry tomatoes might offer protection against osteoporosis, skin damage caused by ultraviolet light and brain disorders, according to a 2010 article published in the "American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine."

Benefits of Green Onions

 The better you eat when it comes to fruits and vegetables,, the less likely you are to develop many medical problems. TN Produce offers locally grown products that is vital for your every day function. Green onions, also known as scallions or spring onions, contain a wide variety of health-enhancing compounds like vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. Use them raw in salads or cook them with other vegetables in stir-fries or sautes for an extra boost of nutrition.

 

Bone Health

A single, 12-gram green onion stalk contains nearly 20 micrograms of vitamin K and 1.6 milligrams of vitamin C. For a healthy adult man, this supplies 16 percent of his recommended daily allowance of vitamin K and nearly 2 percent of his vitamin C RDA. For a woman, a green onion stalk provides 22 percent of her daily vitamin K and 2.1 percent of her vitamin C. Both vitamins K and C are crucial for the growth, development and maintenance of strong bones. If your diet lacks these vitamins, you may be more likely to develop osteoporosis or to suffer from bone fractures.

Eye Health

The body needs vitamin A to produce rhodopsin, the protein in the eyes that allows retinal receptors to absorb light. People whose diets don't include enough vitamin A can develop night blindness and other vision disorders, including corneal ulcers. A green onion stalk contains 24 micrograms of vitamin A in the form of provitamin A carotenoid compounds that the body converts to retinol, the active form of the vitamin. This amount of vitamin A fulfills 2.6 percent of a man's required daily intake and 3.4 percent of a woman's.

Heart Health

The vitamin C and vitamin A found in foods like green onions both have strong antioxidant properties, reports the University of Maryland Medical Center. This means the vitamins can help prevent DNA and cellular tissue damage by inhibiting the activity of free radical compounds. A diet rich in foods with a high antioxidant concentration -- primarily fruits and vegetables -- is linked to a decreased risk of heart disease. Vitamin C may also help prevent high blood pressure, which, in turn, can lower your risk of heart disease.

Immune System Health

According to the American Institute for Cancer Research and the Linus Pauling Institute, onions like green onions are a rich source of phytochemicals, especially flavonoid compounds such as quercetin and anthocyanins. These particular phytochemical compounds are naturally occurring plant chemicals that may support the function of the immune system. A 2001 study published in the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" reported that flavonoids may also help prevent cancer by inhibiting xanthine oxidase, an enzyme that produces free radicals that can damage DNA and cellular tissue.
