Organic Blood Oranges weighing 500 grams.

These are in season in our winter as they need the cooler night temperatures of Autumn and Winter for the 'red' pigment to develop. We usually get ours either from Sicilly or Southern Spain.

Whether you are making a morning juice, replenishing energy after exercise or simply making a delicious meal - juicy, sweet oranges are always a winner and their blood red colour is amazing.

Reasons to eat blood oranges:

  • Anthocyanin - this is the compuound that gives the orange it's red pigment and it is an amazing antioxidant
  • Vitamin C - everyone's go to when they feel the sniffles, an orange contains 100% of you recommended daily requirements, great for immunity and making healthy connective tissues.
  • Protect against cancer - D-limonene present in oranges has been shown in research to prevent various types of cancer including that of the lung, breast and skin.
  • High glycaemic index - despite their sweet flavour, whole orange is high in fibre which means that it's sugars are absorbed slowly by the body and it doesn't cause spikes in blood sugar levels.
  • Great for vision containing not only Vitamin A but also other flavonoid antioxidants that help to keep mucus membranes healthy.
