Nowadays, everyone has become more and more health conscious, fruits are in great demand as their nutritional value is way more than the other foods.

The information about Oranges and Avocado


are among the world’s most popular fruits. Also called sweet oranges, they grow on orange trees and belong to a large group of fruits known as citrus fruits. Their true origin is a mystery, but the cultivation of oranges is thought to have started in Eastern Asia thousands of years ago. Today, they are grown in most warm regions of the world and consumed either fresh or as juice. Oranges are a healthy source of fiber, vitamin C, thiamine, folate, and antioxidants. They have multiple health benefits.

Nutrition facts in about half of a large orange (100 grams):
Calories: 47
Water: 87%
Protein: 0.9 grams
Carbs: 11.8 grams
Sugar: 9.4 grams
Fiber: 2.4 grams
Fat: 0.1 grams

Oranges are mainly composed of cabs and water, with very little protein and fat and few calories. Simple sugars — such as glucose, fructose, and sucrose — are the dominant form of carbs in oranges. They are responsible for the fruit’s sweet taste. Despite their sugar content, oranges have a low glycemic index (GI) of 31–51. This is a measure of how quickly sugar enters your bloodstream after a meal. Low GI values are associated with numerous health benefits. Oranges’ low GI is explained by their high polyphenol and fiber content, which moderates the rise in blood sugar.

Oranges are a good source of fiber. One large orange (184 grams) packs around 18% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI). The main fibers found in oranges are pectin, cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin. Dietary fiber is associated with many beneficial health effects, including improved digestive health, weight loss, and cholesterol.

Vitamins and minerals
Oranges are a good source of several vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C, thiamine, folate, and potassium.

  • Vitamin C. Oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C. One large orange provides over 100% of the RDI.
  • Thiamine. One of the B vitamins, also called vitamin B1, thiamine is found in a wide variety of foods.
  • Folate. Also known as vitamin B9 or folic acid, folate has many essential functions and is found in many plant foods.
  • Potassium. Oranges are a good source of potassium. High intake of potassium can lower blood pressure in people who already have high levels and may reduce your risk of heart disease.


are a stone fruit with a creamy texture that grow in warm climates. Their potential health benefits include improving digestion, decreasing risk of depression, and protection against cancer. Also known as an alligator pear or butter fruit, the versatile avocado is the only fruit that provides a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). Avocados are a naturally nutrient-dense food and contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.

Numerous studies have found that a predominantly plant-based diet that includes foods such as avocados can help to decrease the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and overall mortality while promoting a healthy complexion and hair, increased energy, and overall lower weight.

Avocados are nutrient rich
one-fifth of an avocado, approximately 40 grams, contains:
calories: 64
fat: almost 6 grams
carbohydrate: 3.4 grams
sugar: less than a gram
fiber: almost 3 grams 

Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids. Although most of the calories in an avocado come from fat, avocados are full of healthy, beneficial fats that help to keep you full and satiated. Fat is essential for every single cell in the body, eating healthy fats supports skin health, enhances the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, and may even help boost the immune system.
