The love of oranges in China is really high. Whether it is ugly oranges or a bite of sugar oranges that are bigger than fists, they have loyal fans from the three east provinces to Yunnan, Guangzhou and Fujian.Even in the textbooks of elementary schools, they are indispensable: Bingxin’s "Little Orange Lantern" and Zhu Ziqing’s "Back", they all play an important role!
However, there are a lot of "words" about oranges in rivers and lakes. Let’s take a look at the following statements.
Oranges are rich in vitamins. Eat more for health?
At the same time, the amount of sugar is also very high!
Vitamin C (referred to as VC) in citrus fruits is usually 20-30 mg/100 grams, which is more than two other fruits "stars" in winter -Apple (1 ～ 5 mg/100 grams) and pears (4 to 8Milligram/100 grams) can be much more.
As a group of people in the citrus family, the orange is sufficient, the flesh is soft, sweet and sour, and the price is affordable. In the winter without such rich winter fruits and vegetables, popularity is inevitable: basically a medium -sized orangeCan meet the needs of children’s half of VC every day.In addition, citrus is also rich in potassium, carotene, and orange peel, pomelo skin, etc., all of which are all good and beneficial ingredients.
However, there must be a amount of nutritious food.Take oranges, for example, its problem is that there are a bit of sugar.The sugar content in oranges average is 11.9%. If you encounter a variety of sweet tastes, it will be higher.And because oranges do not need to be washed, you can eat skin peeling, and the taste is soft, which is easy to "eat more accidentally". These oranges are not low in energy intake!
my country’s residents’ dietary guidelines recommend that ordinary adults eat fruits every day about 200-350 grams. It is converted to citrus, almost 2 to 3 medium -sized oranges.If you really love to eat, you are not big to eat one or two more, but "loss in the embankment", eat less other staple foods if you eat too much, and you must pay attention to cleaning your teeth!

Will oranges eat more?
Those who love to eat oranges should have such a personal experience: If the oranges eat too much for a period of time, the skin and feet and the whole body will become yellow, becoming a "little yellow man".Some people even doubt whether the oranges are stained?
In fact, it has nothing to do with dyeing.Eat orange skin will turn yellow because citrus is rich in carotene. If you often eat a lot of oranges, the human body will consume too much carotene.The skin becomes yellow. This situation is called "high carotene hemia", also known as "orange disease". The typical manifestation of this symptom is that the palm of the palm and the soles of the feet becomes yellow, and the skin that will even become yellow.
However, it only affects the "face value" in a short time and does not affect health.As long as you eat oranges temporarily, the skin color can be returned to normal after a week or two, and special treatment is generally not required.In addition, in addition to citrus, carrots in carrots, pumpkins, papaya, mango and other fruits are also rich in carotene. If they eat a lot, they will also become "little yellow people".If you find that a little bit yellow recently, you might as well review whether you have taken too much in these fruits and vegetables in the near future.
Will oranges "get angry" if you eat too much?
The saying of "oranges in love with fire" has given many citrus enthusiasts.
First of all, "getting angry" is a difficult concept.The so -called "getting angry" is a summary of the ancient people’s experience of physical feelings.Many people will say that after eating oranges, the gums are red and swollen, and their mouth ulcers … What is going on?
In fact, for oranges, the culprit of "getting angry" is -the sugar content in oranges is high.Eating too much orange means ingesting a lot of sugar.The high sugar points will make the throat dry and astringent. Some sensitive people may also feel uncomfortable with gums and stomach because of the fruit acid in oranges.If the mouth is not cleaned in time after eating, these food residues and sugar can easily cause bacteria in the oral cavity and cause inflammation. In the early stage, it may be manifested as gingival inflammation. The main feature is that the gums are swollen, bleeding, and pain.Is these similar to the performance of "getting angry" after eating fruit?The solution is very simple: don’t be greedy, just eat one or two a day, and after eating oranges, use the dental floss to clean the flesh residue in the teeth, and rinse your mouth in time."Fire".
Is it good for Bai Yan in oranges?
Look at personal preferences, don’t have to force
The white cotton wool and silk -shaped objects wrapped in the inside and orange petals are called orange collaterals, also known as orange silk and orange bands, usually white, mostly pale yellow and white after drying.Brown yellow.Its essence is actually a kind of peel. The "orange skin" we often say is that there are two layers of peel on the outside and middle layers.Essence
Some people say that the nutritional value of orange is high and believes that it should be eaten, not lost, and even used for medication. This statement is a bit exaggerated.In fact, orange does have some nutrients. Its ingredients are mainly moisture and dietary fiber, and there are some plant polyphenols.However, considering that the amount of Bai Yan is too small, and the taste is not very good. After all, most of them are dietary fiber. If you feel it is lost, it is a pity; but if you feel that the taste is not good, it doesn’t matter if you don’t eat it.It depends on personal preferences.Therefore, there is no need to exaggerate the nutritional value of oranges.I really want to add dietary fiber, and it is better to eat more miscellaneous grains.
Oranges and mother -in -law, female oranges are sweeter?
Scientific indication: No such a thing
The oranges are delicious, and there are generally the general and particularly sweet divisions, so the various "tricks" of the selection of oranges came into being: there are small circles at the bottom of the oranges, the female oranges, the small orange, the mother is better than the public.Sweet, try to pick the mother oranges as much as possible.
There is no scientific basis for this statement!The key to the so -called "male and female" in this statement is the "umbilical" located at the bottom of the fruit (relative to the fruit handle). This is actually the scar left by the flower organs that fall off.The "belly button" at the bottom of the orange is the traces of the flowers fall off, most of which are dotted.These scars are mainly the remnants of transportation of moisture and nutrients. Because the peel tissue below is usually slower than other parts of the fruit (or even not develop), a slightly depressed "umbilical" is formed.
Because the peel development of different fruits is very different, the same variety of oranges can see different sizes, from dotted to ring -shaped umbilicals.The size of the umbilicus is continuously distributed in different fruits. There is no obvious boundary to divide the male and female, and there is no evidence that the development of the umbilicus is related to the taste of the fruit.In fact, citrus, orange, orange, and grapefruit are all citrus fruits. The sourness and sweetness in their taste are directly related to soil, fertilizer, sunlight, tree age, etc.different.
Is it better to drink oranges to drink orange juice?
Nutritional loss is small and affects health!
After the orange juice is squeezed, the dietary fiber is almost filtered out, and it will drink too much if you accidentally cause the sugar intake, which is very unfavorable to health.In fact, it is not just oranges. For all fruits, there is a big difference between drinking juice and eating fruit directly:
1. Nutritional loss of fruit juice
During the production of fruit juice, some of the dietary fiber and nutrients are often filtered out of them, and the vitamin C and antioxidant substances are also suffered from many losses.
2. The fruit juice contains high sugar content, and also belongs to free sugar
There is no problem in the fruit in the fruit.But the sugar in the juice belongs to free sugar after the juice is squeezed.The World Health Organization recommends controlling the intake of "free sugar" to less than 50 grams per day, preferably less than 25 grams.More importantly, the juice is often very sweet, and the delicious sugar content of delicious juice is very high. No one likes to drink the sour juice.The sugar content of apple juice and orange juice is more than 8%, and the sugar content of grape juice can even be as high as 15%to 20%, which is almost twice the sugar content of cola!Drink a cup of pure juice, you can drink 20 to 40 grams of sugar. 40 grams of sugar is equivalent to half a bowl of rice. How can you not get fat every day outside of three meals?Defense will also increase some chronic diseases such as diabetes and hyperlipidemia.
3. Poor juice fullness, fast digestion, blood sugar rising fast
Fruit is a solid state, which needs to be chewed, full of fullness, and slow stomach empty speed; while the juice is a liquid state, without chewing, poor fullness, the exhaust speed in the stomach is fast, absorbing in the intestine tract, absorbing in the intestine tractThe speed is also fast, the blood sugar is much faster, which is very unfavorable to blood sugar and weight control.
4. Drink a lot of fruit juice
People who drink fruit juice often have such experiences, and fruit juice can easily drink a lot.It is very hard to stab a apple, and the stomach is quite full. After eating two apples in a row, no one will ask for the third one.However, drinking a glass of juice is very easy, and it is not difficult to even drink two or three cups. After all, it is much worse.The high sugar in the juice is easy to consume a lot of energy, and it is not good for health.
A large number of studies have shown that drinking fruit juice has a tendency to promote weight gain and increase the risk of diabetes.For children, it also increases the risk of dental caries and leads to children’s tooth decay.For babies under 1 year old, there is no health advantage in the juice. Babies within 1 year of age must not drink fruit juice (whether pure fruit juice).Babies after 6 months can eat fruit puree, and children after 1 year of age should also limit drinking juice.Compared with the full fruit flesh, the juice does not have any nutritional advantages. It is not significant to the healthy and balanced diet structure of infants and children of any age.
Winter is here, and it is the season to eat oranges again.I hope that after deepening their understanding of oranges, they can enjoy its deliciousness healthier and reasonably!
Winter to eat oranges and six taboos, you need to know if you like to eat
