It’s no secret that vegetables are the human body’s super food. That’s why we packed our Veggie Fries with authentic Veggie nutrition, in the forms of carrot, broccoli, kale and red pepper (in our four delicious flavors). But have you ever wondered about the benefits of a particular vegetable? Let’s take a look at what’s inside these veggies (and now our fries):

Carrots: Filled with beta carotene and fiber content, this root vegetable is also a good source of antioxidant agents. Furthermore, carrots are rich in vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, vitamin B8, pantothenic acid, folate, potassium, iron, copper, and manganese.Screenshot 2016-01-22 12.27.12

Broccoli: This crunchy green food is packed with antioxidants. Of all the commonly consumed cruciferous vegetables, broccoli stands out as the most concentrated source of vitamin C.

Kale: Packed with nutrients, kale is one of the world’s healthiest foods. The fiber, potassium, vitamin C and B6 content in kale all support heart health.

Red Peppers: Containing almost 300% of your daily vitamin C intake, red peppers are also a powerful antioxidant and contain vitamin C, which helps your body absorb iron.

In general, working more vegetables into your diet may reduce risk for stroke, cancer, heart disease, and type-2 diabetes. And with Veggie Fries, you can add them to your diet in a convenient, crispy, fluffy, delicious and warm way.
