Parsley contains around 120mg of vitamin C per 100g. Comparatively, oranges contain 50mg per 100g, capsicums contain 150mg per 100g and broccoli contains 100mg per 100g. Based on this, you could say that gram for gram, parsley is a good source of vitamin C but you have to look at how much of it you’d realistically eat in a sitting. You would eat a whole orange in a sitting but you would only consume a very small amount of parsley per meal.
