Tangerines are a bright orange citrus fruit and a variety of the Mandarin Orange. Smaller in size than an orange and also easier to peel. As with other citrus fruits they are full of Vitamin C.

They also contain folic acid and beta carotene. Other nutrients include magnesium, potassium and calcium with vitamins B1-3 also present. Tangerine oil eases constipation and keeps your skin looking good. Other Tangerine benefits include being great as a snack as they can replace high calorie fatty cakes. Tangerines are free of fat, sodium and cholesterol.

In a study on mice at the University of Western Ontario in 2011, the fruit was shown to reduce strokes, heart attacks and diabetes by keeping the rodents free from obesity. Tangerines contain a flavonoid, Nobiletin, which was shown to protect the mice from atherosclerosis and stop the arteries from furring up.

We have two calorie tables below, sourced from the US Department of Agriculture, that show the calorie information for both Tangerines and Tangerine juice. See our fruit calories comparison chart to compare the calories in a Tangerine with the other calories in fruit.
