Mandarin Oranges

The mandarin orange is a variety of the orange family and goes by many names: satsuma, owari, clementine, tangerine, and tangor. Renowned for their concentration of Vitamin C, juicy and sweet oranges contain healing properties that have been associated with a wide variety of phytonutrient compounds. Citrus appears to offer the most significant protection against esophageal, orophayngeal/laryngeal (mouth, larynx and pharynx), and stomach cancers. Be sure to peel before extracting in your NutriBullet.

Selection Process

Select fruits that are unblemished and heavy for their size. Avoid those with cuts, soft spots, or mold. Bright color is not necessarily an indication of quality. Store in a cool, dark spot for a few days, but they should be refrigerated to extend shelf life up to two weeks.
