The Blood Orange – Rich in Antioxidants, Vitamins and Dietary Fiber

Three slices of ruby red blood orange sit on a green marble background. The red-speckled rind of the whole orange and the white-ringed reddish-orange pulp stand out against the dark green marble. An old carbon steel knife sits at an angle in the upper right corner. This image is ideal suited for illustrating food blogs and articles on healthy eating and benefits of citrus fruits and antioxidants. The rich green, red and orange colors combine together in a striking image for decorative artwork.

The Blood Orange (scientific name Citrus sinensis) is predominantly grown in Mediterranean countries or those with similar climates. The low night temperatures during the growing season are necessary to develop the anthocyanins which give this citrus fruit its distinctive color and added health benefits. Blood Oranges are rich in antioxidants including vitamin C and like other citrus fruits they are high in dietary fiber.

Blood Oranges are delicious eaten fresh as a snack or as a flavorful ingredient in salads.  They shine in desserts such as sorbets and iced layer cakes.  They lend an exotic note to cocktails like mimosas and pack a healthy punch in fruit smoothies.
