Similar to apples or bananas in the UK perhaps, the orange is seen as a typical fruit that people may eat on a regular basis rather than something more unusual and perhaps more expensive such as mangos etc.. In terms of the nutritional value for oranges’ health benefits, it is said that they can provide a 54% RDA on the basis of 100g consumed. In addition to this very high level, the same amount of the fruit can provide 4% of a daily requirement for calcium and in addition 9% for Thiamine (Vitamin B1) and 5% of Pantothenic acid (B5). It also has other nutrients including Vitamin B6 and Folate (Vitamin B9).
As regards other nutritional values, the 100g of fruit will provide 46 kcal and have 2.4 g in fiber. One thing that people might want to be aware of, is that due to an orange’s low PH level, they can be threatening to teeth and so for example it might in this regard be a bit better to juice an orange and drink it, then clean your mouth etc., rather than cut it into quarters and use your teeth to juice it that way.
In relation to oranges’ health benefits, one can see that they are readily available all around the year for example in the UK and may also not cost so much relative to some more exotic fruits – although of course with the increasing of prices, they may still be relatively costly. Also, due to their greater adaptability to be juiced, their consumption can be very simple and even if you do not fork out some electric equipment, they can also be juiced manually. Moreover, another benefit of oranges which could be protected against if one is careful is that as fruits go, they are relatively robust to take around as opposed to a ripe pear etc., which could be damaged easily.
