The orange is a cross between the tangerine and the pomelo. The sweet citrus fruit probably arrived in the 15th century with Portuguese ships sailing from India to Europe, where it has been highly sought after ever since.
The fragrances of the aromatic fruit are used in the perfume industry in many ways. But above all, it has become all but impossible to imagine our menus without the orange anymore – it has become indispensable in every conceivable form, whether as juice at breakfast, as an ingredient in fruit salad, in ice cream, or as dried orange peel for flavoring many different dishes.
The orange is considered as a classic supplier of vitamin C (approx. 50 mg/100 g) and can meet the daily requirement with just one fruit. In addition, it contains a number of B vitamins and the red plant dye carotene, a precursor of vitamin A, which is particularly important for a healthy nervous system and for the visual process.
