Phytonutrients, also called bioactives or phytochemicals, are plant compounds which are thought to have health-promoting qualities but are not technically considered “nutrients” (for instance, like Vitamin C or potassium), which are essential to prevent classic nutrient deficiencies. The number of carotenoids in citrus can vary widely depending on citrus variety, growing conditions, fruit maturity, processing, storage, and multiple other factors. Florida Tangerines are packed with vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients (naturally occurring plant compounds) that help support overall wellness.
