Oranges are the most commonly grown fruit in the world. Grated Orange Peel commonly known as orange zest, is added to foods for flavoring.
Orange peelings are usually discarded to the waste box. But many of us do not know that this discard contains many nutritional benefits. Orange peels has highest concentration of calcium and vitamin C.
