Ingredient:

Orange fruit extract

Orange fruit extract  is from sweet oranges, the fruit of the Citrus sinensis tree. Oranges are a very good source of vitamin C and a good source of dietary fiber and folate. One orange is 69 calories and provides 138% of the Daily Value (DV) of vitamin C and 12% of the DV of fiber (nutritiondata.com). The percent DV on a Nutrition Facts label indicates how much a nutrient contributes to a healthy adult’s daily recommended intake based on a 2,000-calorie diet. Oranges, which are also rich in phytochemicals with potent antioxidant properties 1, have been used traditionally to support healthy gastrointestinal and respiratory function2.
