  7. How food handling can affect the number and quality of nutritional, safety, appearance and taste. Food handlers include, process plant, processing, harvesting, cooking until way into food that is ready to be served.
  8. Everyone needs the same nutrients composition, but different in terms of the amount, in accordance with the specific situations and conditions that affect them. The amount of nutritional needs determined by the factors of age, gender, body, activity and the condition of one's health.

Joseph Pizzorno, N.D., natural medicine expert author book Textbook of Natural Medicine and Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine describes how group work nutrition as medicine. According to him, the whole process depends on a functioning enzymes help chemical reaction process in order for the organs, cells can work well.

The better the functioning cells, the more healthy and strong durability of a person's body. For mikoronutrien it is required as a component of the enzyme, forming a barrier poison destroyer enzymes and as one of the cell's genetic improvement process that produces the enzyme.

And recently about 200 years later, the disease actually occurs because someone less supply of vitamin C-the main components found in citrus fruits.

Citrus fruits are indeed known as one of the best sources of vitamin C. For humans, this vitamin has many health benefits. Kandugan vitmain C citrus fruit varied between 27-49 miiligram/100 gr. meat of the fruit.

More than that, the Orange is not only a source of vitamin c. Oranges are also a potential source of folic acid. A citrus fruit can satisfy 20 percent of the body's daily requirement of folic will. The level of consumption of foods with a high content of folic, like fresh orange or in the form of juices and smoothies may increase levels of folate in the body.

Increased levels of homocystein levels will lower the folate, which is toxic to the blood vessel walls. Citrus fruits also contain carotenoids and flavonoids. Carotenoids have a number of important roles for health as a source of vitamin A, inhibits the growth of cancer, prevent cardiovascular disease, lowering the risk of cataracts and boost the immune system.

During its growth, the temperature that is suitable for the cultivation of Orange range at a temperature of 13-18 degrees Celsius. In extreme climates, plant Orange adult-only live 10 hours at temperatures below 4 degrees Celsius.

Orange juice not only refreshes the throat when thirst comes. A study that was held in the United Kingdom mentioned that consuming three cups (750 ml) orange juice every day can increase HDL (good cholesterol) by up to 21 percent after 3 weeks. This study seems to reaffirm the benefits of antioxidants contained in citrus fruit plays a major role for heart health.
