The bitter orange, is probably an ancient hybrid between grapefruit and mandarin, however it grows as autonomous species from centuries. Like the other citrus fruits, they are rich in vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamins PP. They contain numerous active substances, one above all synephrine, which helps burn fat and therefore has slimming qualities. Synephrine acts on our metabolism by stimulating thermogenesis, i.e. the raising of human heat, which increases calorie consumption and therefore has high slimming qualities as this molecule induces us to eat much less. Our oranges are untreated and have an edible peel. This makes them perfect for making jams, candied fruit, liqueurs or for use in cosmetics.
