Making the most out of your vitamins with juicing
Vitamin C is sensitive to light and heat, so to ensure your food remains high in vitamin C, you shoud pay attention to the way it is stored and prepared. Food has most vitamin C when it is raw, fresh, and when you consume both the pulp and the skin. Therefore, freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices are an excellent way to get your daily dose of this vitamin.
100ml of fresh orange juice contains 50mg of vitamin C, while the same amount of lemon juice has 38.70mg. If your tastebuds are craving some variation, you can try delicious juices and smoothies made from other vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin C.
If you want to prepare a drink that’s packed in vitamin C, all you need is fresh fruit and a juicer, such as the Philips Avance Slow Juicer, which gently extracts the maximum amount of nutrients from the ingredients. This variation on orange juice is bursting with vitamin C and contains carrots, grapefruit, orange, lemon and ginger.
With a selection of vitamin C fruits and vegetables or fresh juice containing plenty of vitamin C, you can quickly meet your daily needs. At the same time, you are contributing to a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
