Is there any danger in eating orange peels, not jest but the peel itself?

Not really: In fact, the peel (zest) contains flavorful oils and is used in many desserts. Make sure to wash well to remove surface pesticides and dirt. I am not aware of any nutritional benefit of the better white pith, beside maybe some fiber. ...Read more

Nothing to worry : Food in contact with orange peel may get some of its taste rubbed off on the food but it shd not be harmful at all unless u kept it out & peel were rotting. Even then under clean household conditions it shd not cause any harm. If u r allergic to anything orange it may cause a reactIion. If any symptoms of nausea , vomiting or abdominal pain develop have urself chk'd &do not worry in the meantime. ...Read more

Please help! what is the difference between orange peel skin and cellulite?

Celllulite is looser: Orange peal skin (peau d'orange) has a tighter skin pattern than cellulite. Just take a good look at an actual orange and you will see the tight punctate contours. It can suggest an underlying tumor. Cellulite creates dimpled irregularities of skin, but the pattern is a looser. It is created by the confined nature of certain fascial attachments to the undersurface of the skin, but with no tumor. ...Read more

What is the difference between orange peel skin and cellulite?

Cellulite & Orange: Cellulite generally looks like dimpling of the skin. This is caused by normal bands between the skin and deeper tissues that either shorten, or most commonly, the fat between the skin and deep tissues thicken, causing the dimple. Orange peel skin gets it's appearance from edema or swelling in the skin. The normal skin pores appear larger and deeper. Seen in lymphedema patients sometimes. ...Read more

OK but organic best!: Orange peels are a superb source of beneficial phytonutrients such as bioflavonoids, but will likely have pesticide residues unless organic. In a list of 50 common fruits and veggies apples ranked first in pesticides and oranges 31st- see http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/list.php Try washing before eating by soaking in solution of 10% vinegar/90% water for 20 min,then rinse.Choose organic if available! ...Read more

Concerned. Does fruit peel contain more pesticides than normal fruit? Would an apple contain more pesticides than orange peel?

Pesticides: All fruits should be well washed because of the use of pesticides often used by the growers. Of course the peel contains the brunt of the pesticide. I don't feel that there is any significant difference between apples and oranges in that regard except you don't eat the peel of the Orange usually. ...Read more
