A few days ago I proposed a riddle that has a lot to do with the dates that we are, and which was to guess which food contains more beta-carotene, a nutrient needed to achieve a perfect dark at this time of the year and keep the skin in perfect condition. It is therefore important that we know how to detect food containing it in high amounts.
Among the four options that we proposed, the most voted has been the carrot, followed by the squash, red pepper and spinach. To make this vote the vast majority has been carried away by the color of the food itself, since an identifier of beta-carotene are foods with red or orange. This argument is very good, but it is not always effective, as food containing more beta carotene are spinach.
First we proposed the carrot as an alternative. It is true that it is a food that contains it in high amounts, namely is six hundred and sixty-three ppm of beta-carotene per 100 grams of food. That is why whenever we speak of this nutrient comes mind this food as the King and star in achieving the optimal amounts of the same.
Secondly, we gave as an option red pepper. This food contains an intense color that can mislead us to believe that it contains high amounts of beta-carotene. It is true that their content is of four hundred and sixty-two ppm per 100 grams. It is not for nothing a little amount, but it is not the food containing more.
Thirdly we offered Spinach as an alternative. This food because of its green color has been the least votes, but nothing is further from reality, which is that more beta-carotene specifically contains ninety-six hundred ppm per 100 grams of product. An amount that will keep us reserves of beta-carotene in perfect condition to get the skin you want.
Lastly we offered as alternative the pumpkin. Its position is also the last options we offered regarding content of beta-carotene, it simply contains two hundred forty ppm per 100 grams. Its orange color is what has despistado to most of those who have answered this option as it contains more, and is that the rule of color, in this case being ignored so we cannot let us guide for it, but simply because the content itself.
