Orange Juice 3 Ways

by | Jun 26, 2024 | Breakfast Juice

Description

There are 3 ways to make orange juice using a Kuvings cold press juicer.

  • Cut in half and use the citrus attachment which is an optional accessory available to purchase here
  • Cut off the orange skin and the white pith underneath the skin
  • Cut off just the orange skin

Each of these three methods produces a different result in both flavour and quantity of juice yield.

Try it for yourself and see which method you like best.

 

Happy Juicing!

Method 1 – Speed

The first method uses the optional citrus attachment, available to purchase for all Kuvings cold press juicers. It is the fastest way to make your orange juice in the morning.

Simply cut each orange in half a press the flesh side down onto the citrus attachment to extract the juice.

Another added speed bonus is that it is easy to clean up afterwards as all you need to do is rinse the attachment under water.

Method 2 – Best Taste

In this method, you remove the orange skin and the white pith underneath the skin before putting the oranges into your juicer. This is the best tasting method as you get clean cold pressed juice with no pulp and pure orange juice flavour.

Method 3 – Nutrition

In this method, you remove only the orange skin but leave the white pith on the orange before putting into your juicer. If you are drinking orange juice for maxi,un nutrition then this method is the best.

The white pith adds a touch of bitterness to the flavour and creaminess to the texture.

Take a look at the nutritional benefits of juicing the pith:

Vitamin C: Oranges are rich in vitamin C, and the pith contains a good amount of this essential nutrient, which is important for immune function, skin health, and antioxidant protection.

Bioflavonoids: The pith is high in bioflavonoids, which work synergistically with vitamin C to enhance its absorption and effectiveness. Bioflavonoids also have antioxidant properties, helping to protect cells from damage.

Calcium: The pith contains small amounts of calcium, which is important for bone health and various metabolic functions.

Pectin: This soluble fiber found in the pith can help regulate blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol, and improve gut health.

Incorporating the white pith when juicing oranges maximizes the nutritional benefits, making your juice even healthier.

Health Benefits

Orange

Oranges help quench your thirst and moisten your lungs, letting the energy flow freely in the chest. They also have a wide variety of phytonutrient compounds like anthocyanins, citrus flavanones, and various polyphenols. Oranges are not only a juicy and refreshing fruit but also offer a range of health benefits. Here's why oranges are good for various systems in our body:

Nutrition: Oranges are low in calories but high in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage. They also contain fiber, potassium, and other vitamins and minerals that support overall health.

Immune System: Vitamin C is essential for a healthy immune system. Oranges are a great source of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system and reduce the risk of colds, flu, and other illnesses. Oranges destroy free radicals that cause signs of skin aging, scouring the intestine and flushing toxins from the body. Freshly squeezed orange juice is a predigested food. This allows for immediate absorption of all its abundant healing properties.

Digestive System: Oranges are a good source of fibre, which can help promote healthy digestion and prevent constipation. The fibre in oranges also helps support a healthy gut microbiome.

Cardiovascular/Circulatory System: Oranges are rich in antioxidants like flavonoids, which have been shown to help reduce inflammation and improve heart health. The potassium in oranges can also help regulate blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Nervous System: Oranges contain vitamin B6, which is important for the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters play a role in mood regulation and can help reduce stress and anxiety.

Respiratory System: Oranges are rich in vitamin C, which can help support respiratory health. Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the severity and duration of respiratory infections like the common cold. Oranges are full of lung-friendly antioxidants and packed with vitamin C which is well known for fighting infection and inflammation.

Skin Health: The antioxidants in oranges, including vitamin C, can help reduce the signs of aging and improve skin health. Oranges can also be used topically to improve skin tone and texture.

Skeletal System: Oranges are a good source of calcium, which is important for maintaining strong and healthy bones. Calcium is essential for bone mineralization and can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

Eye Health: Oranges contain nutrients like vitamin A, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which are important for eye health. These nutrients can help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.
