Orange Juice: Goodness in Every Sip
In addition to being one of America’s favorite beverages – consumed in nearly 70 percent of American households – orange juice is a nutritional powerhouse containing more than 100 percent of the daily value for vitamin C. Vitamin C is a nutrient known to be important to the immune system and intake of vitamin C rich foods may help support a healthy immune system. Further, published studies conclude that regular consumption of citrus may help play a role in helping to support healthy cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. Moreover, research shows that organically-produced foods are also higher in antioxidants and other nutrients than their conventional counterparts. For these reasons and more, Uncle Matt’s Organic juices are a tasty, convenient way to ensure that you are getting your daily dose.

The State of the Orange Report: The Power Behind the Peel
As part of their steadfast commitment to healthy living, organic farming and certainly not least of all, quality organic produce and juice, Uncle Matt’s Organic has released a comprehensive orange trends and research report. “The State of the Orange: The Power Behind the Peel” examines the current state of the orange juice industry, and the issues at stake to keeping orange juice on America’s table.
Despite the variety of health and usage benefits, juice sales have continued to decline yearly since 2007. This is in large part due to reduced supply and increased costs directly attributed to the Citrus Greening Disease epidemic. The disease has devastated Florida’s citrus crops and is quickly spreading to California and Texas. The continued spread of the disease could pose serious consequences for America’s favorite juice.
The report details the state of the orange juice industry, the importance of choosing organic, the benefits of orange juice, explores myths and offers usage tips and recipe suggestions.
