High-vitamin-C foods

Acerola cherries

Known as Barbados cherries, West Indian cherries, or wild crepe myrtles, acerola cherries are strong in vitamin C. This strange dish is common enough to make the list. Acerola cherries provide 1,600 mg of vitamin C per 100 grammes, plus vitamin A, B-vitamins, and antioxidants.

Bell peppers

Bell peppers vary. All are high in vitamin C, however the levels vary by hue. Yellow peppers have 341 mg, while green peppers have 95 mg.


You only need a half-cup of blackcurrants to meet your daily vitamin C needs. Few people eat these acidic berries fresh, preferring jellies, jams, and preserves.'


One cup of cooked broccoli provides more than 100 milligrammes of vitamin C, meeting both men's and women's daily needs. We'll skip chicken soup for broccoli cheddar the next time we're sick.

Brussels sprouts

As kids, we despised broccoli and Brussels sprouts. As mum always stated, we now think both of these veggies are fantastic. A half-cup serving of broccoli offers about 50 milligrammes of vitamin C, like Brussels sprouts. Fiber, potassium, vitamins A and K are in the latter.


Kiwis are small but packed with vitamin C. One kiwi has approximately the daily minimum for women and two-thirds for men. Kiwis' fibre aids digestion.


One lemon contains around one day's worth of vitamin C. We don't know many people who consume lemon peels, therefore this information isn't relevant. Lemons were popular in the 1700s for preventing scurvy. Instead of eating it whole, drink the juice (about 42 mg per half-cup).


Oranges contain vitamin C, the least shocking fact in this slideshow. How high? An 8-ounce glass of orange juice provides more than 100 mg.
