A Splash of Summer

If winter's shorter days and cooler weather are bringing you down, try brightening your day with some The Fresh 1® oranges. Their color and flavor will send summer straight to your senses, and the juice will work wonders on the inside of your body.

Although they haven't been proven to cure colds, that doesn't mean an orange's high levels of vitamin C aren't having an effect. Vitamin C reduces your body's histamine levels, a naturally occurring chemical that causes red eyes and a runny nose. Oranges are good for other reasons, too - they're high in folic acid and, like many other fruits and vegetables, they also contain several phytochemicals that may reduce the risk of cancer.

Raw oranges are a convenient, easy snack, and there are also many ways you can add their power to meals and desserts.

Health Benefits
Oranges are fat-, sodium-, and cholesterol-free, low in calories, and high in vitamin C and fiber. They also contain phytochemicals, which may help protect against cancer and other diseases.

Fun Facts

  • It takes 2-4 oranges to yield one cup of orange juice.
  • One orange has 10-12 sections.
  • Spanish explorers first brought the orange to Florida.

The Fresh1 uses Valencia oranges from California, and navel oranges from California, Florida, and Texas to create a year round supply.

Storage
They can be kept at room temperature for a few days, but it is best to keep oranges in the refrigerator crisper.
