Orange Skin Fact.
The major phenolic compounds present in the orange include hydroxycinnamic acids (HCA) and flavonoids, among which flavanones are the most prevalent. Citrus flavonoids, especially hesperidin, have a wide range of therapeutic properties, including anti-inflammatory, antihypertensive, diuretic, analgesic, and hypolipidemic activities. The concentrations of antioxidant components vary among the different parts of the orange; therefore, the antioxidant activity of orange parts may also vary. In general, the peel of the fruit contains a higher concentration of antioxidant substances than the flesh of the fruit.
