Taste Australia's Navel Oranges are back in season
This year has been so challenging because of the Pandemic. We became more conscious about our health and started eating healthy fruits and veggies for a stronger immune system. So, if you’re looking to strike a happy balance between nutritious and delectable, then look no further than Australian Navel Oranges.
Famously known as an immunity booster, oranges are high in Vitamin C content and contain natural flu-fighting properties which aid in fending off cough and colds. These fruits are also renowned to help in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels and a healthy heart.
Amidst another productive harvest season, Taste Australia is once again bringing in its high quality Navel Oranges straight from Australia’s pristine south east regions for Filipinos to enjoy.
Australian oranges are famous for its high Vitamin C content and natural flu-fighting properties. They are also high in antioxidants, fibre, folate and potassium. Australian oranges have numerous health and nutritional benefits including:
- Nutrient density which is great for weight control
- Good source of folate which is perfect for pregnant women (may help prevent spina bifida) and the rest of the family (helps the immune system and heart)
- Great for blood pressure control with high potassium and low salt
- Rich in antioxidants which helps keep you fit and healthy throughout the year.
To mark the occasion, Hort Innovation hosted an online launch under the Taste Australia banner last September 03, 2020, which featured Celebrity Chef, Luigi Muhlach, who demonstrated the versatility of oranges as a sweet snack or a savoury dish.
“Oranges can make for a quick and easy snack. They’re also packed with antioxidants, fibre, folate and potassium,” said Muhlach. “It’s also incredibly versatile and we can utilize it in a number of unique recipes.”
