FAST FACT QUESTION: How much juice or fruit will a medium-sized Florida orange yield? (The answer is below. See if you can find it!)
Drinking a glass of Florida OJ is like drinking a glass of sunshine! All of the oranges used for Florida OJ are grown in sunny Florida. Orange Juice contains almost 90 percent water by weight; therefore, it is an excellent choice for hydration, especially during the summer months. Plus, Florida oranges are full of natural goodness. Florida Citrus calls all that goodness “Amazing 5.”
The Amazing 5 “goodnesses” are taste, vitamin C, potassium, folate, and no added sugar.
TASTE: The unique, delicious flavor of 100% Florida OJ is often imitated, but never duplicated. It is sweet, refreshing, and empowering.
VITAMIN C: 100% Florida OJ is an excellent source of Vitamin C, which is important for the formation of collagen. Collagen is a component of bones, gums, and cartilage.
FOLATE: 100% Florida OJ is a good source of folate, a water-soluble vitamin essential for cell division and healthy red blood cells. (It is often recommended for pregnant women!)
POTASSIUM: 100% Florida OJ is a good source of potassium. Potassium is important for muscle function; it plays a role in nerve transmission; and it helps maintain the body’s fluid, electrolyte, and pH balance. (If you tend to have muscle cramps, reach for Florida OJ. Potassium is known to reduce or prevent muscle spasms.)
NO ADDED SUGAR: 100% Florida OJ contains no added sugar. It’s delicious without it because it gets so much of nature’s goodness.
Did you know? One medium-sized Florida orange will yield approximately 2 ounces of juice and ½ cup of fruit!
