Florida Orange Juice | There's Amazing Inside
Have You Had Hesperidin Today?

Florida orange Juice is more than just the great nutrients you know about like vitamin C, potassium, and folate; it also contains the phytonutrient, or flavonoid, hesperidin. Hesperidin plays a valuable role in the overall benefits of 100% orange juice and may contribute to:

     •  Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities 1
     •  Heart and vascular health 2,3,4
     •  Glucose metabolism 5
     •  Cognitive health 6,7

Hesperidin is found in citrus pulp, juice, and peel, making 100% orange juice a great choice when looking to incorporate more hesperidin into your diet.
Did you know?
Increased pressures by commercial juicers have shown to increase flavonoid content vs. hand-squeezed or high-end consumer presses1, making Florida Orange Juice a great way to get hesperidin into your diet.

In fact, 100% orange juice is the only fruit juice or commonly consumed food that contains a significant amount of hesperidin.
