Description

Simply bursting with vitamins, who doesn’t enjoy peeling a juicy sweet orange (or slightly bitter depending upon the variety) and enjoying segment after segment. Alternatively use it for juicing, making cakes or add segments or grated peel to a salad. The peel has an even higher content of some nutrients so try incorporating it into recipes for an extra health hit!

* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.

Health benefits

One of your 5-a-day, oranges are rich in vitamin C which is a powerful antioxidant. One medium orange can provide the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C for adults. Oranges are also a good source of fibre, B vitamins, vitamin A, calcium and potassium, as well as flavanones which research suggests help to protect the body from heart disease and cancer as well as having some anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antimicrobial benefits.
