Natural oranges

How to prepare

It is widely consumed globally.

The skin is peeled, which can be removed by hand or with the help of a blunt knife. The centre is the edible part of the fruit, but the seeds must be removed first.

The most famous recipes

Oranges are a fruit that can be used as an additional ingredient in many dishes. The seasoning of the dishes can be enhanced with the orange because the sweet and sour taste is perfect.

The peel of the fruit is widely used to give a particular flavour to some desserts such as cakes and biscuits.

However, the most common way to consume it is by eating its segments directly after they have been peeled, though the most common use is to extract the juice from the fruit and then drink it.

Benefits, Properties and Uses

It is a citrus fruit but many varieties of it have a very sweet taste depending on the area where it is harvested.

The citrus flavour is produced by the large amount of vitamin ‘C’ it contains. This vitamin is responsible for strengthening the immune system.

Therefore, the consumption of this fruit is perfect for preventing and fighting against winter respiratory diseases, such as colds and common flus.

Furthermore, several studies have concluded that the natural vitamin ‘C’ present in the orange helps reduce the risk of suffering an ischemic-type stroke.

As the fruit is also high in vitamin ‘P’ and low in sodium, it is ideal for people with heart and blood pressure problems.

Vitamin ‘C’ also helps fight against the formation of free radicals that cause cancer. For this reason it is recommended that babies are given lemon juice, as major studies have shown a significant reduction in cases of childhood leukaemia.

It is a fruit that has alkalising properties and is therefore used in cases of high uric acid. Besides, it is able to improve fat absorption so it is recommended to be consumed in case of obesity and diabetes.

Athletes can replace electrolytes lost during training by drinking the juice of this fruit. The potassium and water content rehydrates the body.

On another hand, the orange can help in the absorption and fixing of iron and folic acid. This is important for people with anaemia and for pregnant women.

Contraindications or Precautions

The benefits of this fruit are better exploited during the day, so it is recommended that it is eaten at breakfast.

It is advisable to reduce the consumption of this fruit by people undergoing other medical treatments with diuretics. This fruit enhances the diuretic action and the body may end up losing excessive amounts of salt and potassium.
