Tangerine: calories, carbs, fats and other nutrients


There are many myths about the tangerine. Many people have probably heard that you can’t eat more than four fruits a day? This is an exaggeration – there is no common table indicating the dangerous amount of this citrus. And they say that the green leaves on the tangerine are a sign of its particular freshness, that the orange rind makes the fruit sweeter, that the naringin contained in the zest directly burns fat and that citrus in general and the tangerine in particular is probably the best source of vitamin C. None of this is entirely true, either. But the tangerine has properties that have long been in demand in folk medicine, which make it a promising product in the fight against some serious diseases.
