Earthbound Farm Organic Oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of fiber and folate. Oranges and other citrus fruits contain bioflavonoids — a class of antioxidants that, as part of a healthy diet, has been linked to a number of potential health benefits.
Oranges are also bursting with vitamin C; try eating them with other produce that contains iron, like spinach, because vitamin C will help the body absorb iron from plant-based sources. Vitamin C also promotes wound healing, supports the immune system, and aids in skin health.
Oranges are a great choice for women who are pregnant or are trying to become pregnant; it provides 12% of the Daily Value for folate — an essential nutrient needed in higher amounts during pregnancy.
Why choose organic oranges?
Oranges are #31 on theEnvironmental Working Group's “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce,” a list of produce that carries the most pesticide residues when grown conventionally. So choosing organic oranges makes good sense — especially for children, whose growing bodies are so much more susceptible to environmental chemical exposures than adults’.
At Earthbound Farm, we grow our organic oranges without toxic synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, using sustainable farming methods that protect the environment and help keep pesticides out of our soil, air, water and food supply. Organic food is the healthiest choice for people and the planet — and we think organic oranges taste better, too!
WhatsOnMyFood.org from the Pesticide Action Network shows you searchable results for oranges, orange juice and a wide range of other organic and conventional foods. It’s an easy-to-use and empowering tool for learning about pesticide residues and their health effects for all of us.
