Power Food Recipe: 60 Minute Orange Rolls

This week’s Power Food is Oranges! The word “Orange” was first used for the color and not for the fruit. Oranges can be consumed raw, in the form of juices, marmalade or as a part of various desserts. 85% of globally produced oranges are converted into orange juice which is often served with breakfast in the western societies. Believe it or not, Oranges are domesticated so you are unlikely to find them growing naturally in the wild. Almost 70 million tons of oranges are produced each year. One-third of commercially available oranges originate from Brazil. In Jamaica, people use orange peel to remove grease and oil spots.

Health Benefits of Oranges

Oranges are an especially rich source of folic acid. One orange holds about 50 mcg, and a large glass of fresh-squeezed juice may contain even more. Their high folate content has a positive action on cardiovascular, and emotional health. Researchers suggest that maintaining a consistent dietary intake of folate is essential to managing metabolism and protecting long-term health.
