About Organic Orange

Is it OK to eat an orange a day?

One orange provides a range of vitamins and minerals, including an amazing 130 percent of your vitamin C needs for the day (an average orange has 51 mg of vitamin C). According to research, eating higher amounts of a compound found in citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruit may lower ischemic stroke risk for women, but more research needs done to find out exactly why. You would need to eat upwards of 40 oranges a day to overdose on the vitamin C (2000 mg plus) – and even then it’s unlikely until around 4000 mg (80 oranges!)

 

How do you use oranges?

If you want to use the zest, simply rinse them and grate away, since the oranges are unwaxed (all organic fruits are unwaxed). People find different ways to peel and eat an orange, it is popular to slice the orange and eat it straight from the skin. In warmer weather they're best kept in the fridge. Less ripe fruit contains more pectin. Peeled or stored oranges quickly lose their vitamin C.

These organic oranges are sold loose. We will often put them in brown paper bags for transit.

Reliably large and very fresh. I buy around 10 each week for juicing and they're always of good quality. Organic's important to me, partly for health and pesticide use, but mainly because I can use the zest from organic ones, which is brilliant for getting flavour into cooking and dressings.

As a sceptic I did not think an organic orange would be any different from a non-organic one. How wrong can you be?
