Orange peel, pulp, or juice: which one has the most vitamin C?My husband guessed the peel. My daughter went with pulp. The winner was...my daughter! Quoting from the e-message:
Orange pulp wins, according to the authors of the book SuperFoods HealthStyle. The pulp has twice as much vitamin C as the peel and 10 times as much as the juice. And here’s what all that nutrition means to your body.Years ago, when my husband was a cancer patient, I used to make homemade orange juice in my juicer every morning. Maybe I should restart that habit. Who knows, I just may avoid a cold or two.

Each orange packs over 60 flavonoids, 170 phytochemicals, and a healthy dose of vitamin C.

And all that healthy stuff in oranges may help prevent a host of health conditions, including arthritis, asthma, high blood pressure, blood clots, colds, and even cancer.
