Orange Tips

  • Once you have juiced your orange be sure to consume the juice in a reasonable amount of time. Vitamin C is easily destroyed when exposed to air. For optimal nutrients consume your fresh orange juice within one to two hours of juicing.
  • Oranges can be stored at room temperature and still be good for a couple of weeks, or for a longer shelf life, store in the refrigerator.
  • When buying oranges at your grocery store choose ones that are heavy and firm - this indicates that they have an excellent juice content.
  • To get more juice out of yours oranges. Put your orange on the counter and roll it under the palm of your hand while appling pressure. Doing this open the vessels in the orange to release even more juice. For best result do this with an orange that is at room temperature.

Caution
