Did You Know?
For this Peach Sangria Recipe the directions instruct to remove the "pith" (the white part of the peel) from the orange.
Sometimes the pith tastes a little bitter.
However, did you know that, when hand-eating an orange, it is advisable to eat the white part of the orange's skin?
The white part of the rind contains high levels of vitamin-C and contains sources of pectin. Pectin is a soluble dietary fiber with potential to lower serum cholesterol, relieve diarrhea, act as an immune system stimulant and as anti-ulcer agent.
The pith also containes anti-cancer agents and important bioflavonoids (an antioxidant).
So, the next time when you are ready to peel that delicious orange, think twice about peeling off those healthy beneficial white piths!
