FAQs about Valencia oranges

Like much of the citrus family, Valencia oranges are positively bursting with health benefits. One orange contains all the vitamin C that your body needs for an entire day. Citrus is also high in fiber, with one cup of orange segments providing four grams of fiber. Oranges are also high in soluble fiber, which is particularly potent for lowering cholesterol levels, and offer a high level of antioxidants that help strengthen the immune system. All of this power comes at a relatively low caloric cost, despite the full feelings they leave eaters with when consumed. 

Studies have shown that oranges may have cancer-fighting benefits, with some research linking citrus consumption with a decreased likelihood of esophageal, stomach, and pancreatic cancers. Plant compounds known as flavonoids act as antioxidants that can help prevent cancer and other diseases. 

Orange juice and whole oranges are nutritionally similar, but there are some notable differences in their nutritional compositions. Because orange juice removes much of the pulp, it reduces the amount of fiber and increases the number of concentrated carbs and sugars. 

However, Valencia orange juice is still a fantastic source of vitamin C; just make sure that you find sources of fiber elsewhere in your diet. If you find yourself with a surplus of Valencia oranges, homemade orange juice is a delicious treat for breakfast or anytime. For a sweet and cool summer treat, pour some of the juice into a popsicle mold for a refreshing frozen creation. 

When you are looking to try out a new recipe, don't overlook the culinary power of citrus. Valencia oranges, in particular, are extremely versatile and offer a balance of sweet and tart that make them very successful when incorporated into cooking. Blend them with your choice of milk, yogurt, and ice for a healthy and tangy smoothie. Add sections of orange to a salad; the olive oil joins with the tartness of the orange for pure culinary alchemy. 

Valencia oranges can also be combined with other ingredients to make a marinade or glaze that elevates chicken, beef, duck, and even seafood. Valencia oranges are also wonderful when baked into bread or citrus muffins. As an added treat, candy the peel of the Valencia orange as a topping for your creation to bring a crunchy, sweet pop of joy to every bite. 

Valencia oranges, eaten whole or as part of a meal, are a wonderful and fun addition to any grocery list!
