This season, a large fruit with very similar wavelengths began to dominate the fruit market. Oranges, oranges, grapefruit, mandarin oranges…
These juicy, sweet and sour citrus fruits are the favorite fruits of many people in autumn and winter. You can eat them without peeling or washing. You can eat them one by one, not to mention how warm they are.
In winter, eat oranges!
Whether lemon, grapefruit, orange or orange, they are widely known to be rich in vitamin C (VC).
Although citrus fruits are not the king of VC, the content of VC is usually 20-30 mg/100g, which is much higher than that of apples (1-5 mg/100g) and pears (4-8 mg/100g). Therefore, citrus is definitely a good source of VC in winter when fresh fruits and vegetables are scarce. Basically, a medium-sized orange can meet 1/4 of the VC demand a day.
In addition, citrus is also rich in potassium, carotenoids, hesperetin, naringenin and so on, which are all beneficial ingredients for health.
Kumquat, grapefruit, one cannot be less
Kumquat can be eaten with skin, and nutrition is really not wasted at all.
But the premise is-clean! Wash it! Wash it! Don’t ask Dr. Clove how he can wash it clean… Of course, it can only be washed with water!
Pomelo is a natural vitamin C warehouse.
Some varieties of grapefruit contain as much as 61 mg/100g of VC, higher than lemons and oranges. Moreover, the peel is very thick, especially resistant to storage, and it is almost a canned natural fruit. It will not deteriorate after several weeks of storage, which is a must for winter fruits.
Of course, it is still recommended that you eat it earlier, after all, the fresher the grapefruit, the better it is.
Heard that eating too many oranges will make you angry?
Dr. Clove has said many times before that [excessive internal heat] is a difficult concept to define.
However, for oranges, there is still a suspect who caused the [excessive internal heat], that is, the sugar in oranges.
Because it is very convenient to eat, and the taste is sour and sweet, it will not feel bored at all, especially in what, where many people eat sugar oranges in baskets. Eating too much orange means not eating less sugar. After all, the sugar content of oranges is also 10%.
On the one hand, high sugar content will dehydrate the cells in the throat due to osmotic pressure, resulting in dry and astringent throat.
On the other hand, high sugar content will also bring too high blood sugar load (GL), which may aggravate acne, i.e. Acne.
In addition, some sensitive people may also feel gum and stomach discomfort due to fruit acid in oranges.
Taken together, the above is probably the reason why people think [oranges are prone to excessive internal heat]. After all, it is all caused by eating too much.
How much should I eat every day?
No matter how good the nutrition is, fruits cannot be used as food.
According to the recommendations in the Dietary Guidelines for Chinese Residents, the intake of fresh fruits per person per day should be about 200-350 g. Converted to citrus, it is almost the amount of two medium oranges or three or four large grapefruit. As snacks between meals, it is hungry and healthy.
If you really like to eat and have no blood sugar trouble, it is no problem to eat one or two more oranges. It is good to eat less than half a bowl of rice.
In addition, Dr. Clove should emphasize that drinking orange juice does not mean eating oranges directly. The best way to eat fruit is to chew it yourself.
Another problem is…
I heard that if you eat too many oranges, your skin will turn yellow? Really?
Hey hey, this is not a rumor.
If you eat too many oranges and the carotene in them enters the blood in large quantities, you may become [Minions].
However, this is only a short-term [color value problem] and will not affect health. As long as you don’t eat yellow vegetables and fruits for the time being, you can return to normal in a week or two.
Orange, grapefruit, orange… What is the relationship?
Fruit circles generally have no moral integrity, and the relationship between these fruits is really chaotic enough.
Orange, grapefruit, orange, lemon, grapefruit… These members of the genus Citrus of Rutaceae are actually obtained through many hybridization by three [ancestors].
The three elders are:
- Citron (yu á n): Bergamot is a kind of beautiful citron pomelo: No explanation, everyone has eaten wide-skinned orange: the peel and pulp are very loose, and the most familiar one should be Nanfeng tangerine.
That is to say, any couple of marriages, it is possible to get a new variety… For example:
- Orange: Natural hybrid offspring of grapefruit and wide-skinned orange; Grapefruit: The offspring of a natural hybrid of grapefruit and orange, which looks and looks like oranges and tastes more like grapefruit.
I feel unable to look directly at all kinds of oranges…
