The tangerine is one of the most popular fruits produced in Spain. The properties are similar to those of the orange, but the smaller size, thinner skin and sweeter taste make the tangerine one of the favourite fruits of the young and not so young. They have a good amount of fibre, very good for the intestinal transit, and a lot of water and less sugar than other fruits of its category.

Clemenvillas tangerines: in production from late November to March. They have a very intense orange colour and a lot of juice. They have an extraordinary and very intense flavour and they are very uniform in size. Their rind is thin and a bit harder, their segments are very thin-skinned and their flavour, hybrid between grapefruit and tangerine, is unbeatable. It is the most successful tangerine among both adults and children. They are seedless tangerines (pipes) although there might be some seeds due to bee pollination.

Benefits, Properties and Uses

It is a relative of oranges, which is why it is a citrus fruit rich in vitamin ‘C’. Its benefits are multiple and contribute to improve the health of the body. 88% of its content is water.

Even though it contains less vitamin ‘C’ than oranges or lemons do, it is still perfect for strengthening the immune system, making it the best ally for preventing the onset of colds, flu and the common cold.

It is also ideal for reducing cellular ageing and is able to improve the absorption of iron in the body, which is important for treating anaemia.

Among sportsmen and women, its use has become very widespread because, as it contains large proportions of water and vitamin ‘C’, it can help to replace electrolytes lost through sweat while training.

On another hand, it is ideal for athletes and people on a weight-loss diet, as it contains very few calories.

Pregnant women also consume this fruit because it helps to fix better folic acid, which is essential for the development of the baby and to avoid anaemia during pregnancy.

This fruit also has purifying properties due to the presence of potassium, water and high levels of citric acid. This is perfect for reducing uric acid levels in the blood.

These depurative properties are widely used to control or reduce cholesterol levels in the blood. Likewise, this property improves fat absorption so it is recommended to be consumed in case of obesity and diabetes.

Other of its property is alkalizing, so it can regulate the PH of both skin and blood.

People with intestinal problems can consume this fruit. As it contains large amounts of fibre, the intestinal transit will improve and therefore alleviate problems related to constipation and intestinal motility.

Contraindications or Precautions

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