Sanguine Full on Antioxidants – Increase Them by 3000%!

Have you ever tried sanguine? Known as a “red orange,” this is a variety of orange with a dark red color—almost the color of blood—hence the name “blood orange.”

In terms of nutrition, it is quite close to sanguine orange. However, its taste and aroma are more intense and characteristic.

In fact, sanguine has the highest vitamin C content of any orange variety grown in the world.

The main beneficial nutritional characteristic of sanguine that makes it nutritionally superior to oranges is its special antioxidant components.

Now scientists have discovered a simple but effective trick to increase its nutritional value even more: By keeping Sanguine at cold temperatures, University of Florida researchers were able to increase the level of a type of antioxidant called “anthocyanins” by 3000%!

Anthocyanin-rich foods are an important part of a healthy diet. Of course, scientists are still investigating their role in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.

The results of their studies so far show that they neutralize free radicals, reduce inflammation and “lower” bad cholesterol (HDL).

At the same time, they reduce the clotting ability of blood platelets, preventing the formation of blood clots that can cause strokes and heart attacks.

According to a study they published in Food Chemistry Advantages in sanguine anthocyanins increase at 4.4°C to 11.5°C.

Previous research conducted by the University of Arkansas confirms that freezing and cryopreservation of foods preserves anthocyanins more effectively, with the greatest loss occurring during the heat treatment required during juicing or pasteurization of pulp and canned goods.
