5 foods that are high in vitamin C

Vitamin C is an important vitamin needed for our body. We don’t naturally produce vitamin C, and so, we need to rely on consuming certain fruits, vegetables and other supplements. Our body needs vitamin C for the repair and growth of tissues while also being vital for collagen synthesis. Bottom line.. we need vitamin C

  1. Kakadu Plum

Kakadu Plum is an Australian native bush fruit that is known to have the highest source of natural vitamin C of any plant in the world. In fact, it is known to have up to 100 times more vitamin C than oranges. Wild harvested by Indigenous Australians in the Top End of Australia, one plum is known to have 481 mg of vitamin C, which is 530% of the Daily Vitamin C intake.

You don’t have to travel to remote communities and harvest them yourself. You can now easily enjoy this incredible superfood in powder form from Kakadu Plum Co.

2. Black currents

They not only taste good and can probably be eaten by the handful, but they also boast a high source of vitamin C. They are also a great source of Vitamin A and E. They also have a great effect on the body’s inflammatory response.

3. Brussel Sprouts

You heard right… brussel sprouts. The old wives tale of needing to eat your brussel sprouts was not such a bad idea after all 🙂 Try putting them in the oven to roast them. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper with some olive oil and I promise, they will not be so boring anymore.

4. Papaya

One cup (145 grams) of papaya provides 87 mg of vitamin C, or 97% of your Daily Vitamin C intake.

Enjoy a bowl of papaya with a scoop of yogurt and some Kakadu Plum Powder sprinkled on top; the perfect vitamin C combo.
