Often covered in a thick, orangey-yellow skin, the inside is divided into segments of juicy pulp. Oranges are typically eaten by peeling the skin and consuming only the juice and pulp inside.
The orange fruit is rich in antioxidants and vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin B6, folic acid and dietary fiber. These vitamins promote a healthy immune system and prevent heart disease and high blood pressure. Oranges also contain a significant amount of important minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.
