|Abstract:||Oranges are well-known for their vitamin C rich juice. Orange peel, which is used for pectin extraction is abundantly available from juice processing units as byproduct. Recent USDA scientists have found that the pectin, a carbohydrate, present in its peel have health-promoting effects. Pectin, has prebiotic properties. Prebiotics are nondigestible foods or nutrients that increase growth of beneficial, probiotic bacteria in the large intestine, where they stimulate health and help curb foodborne pathogens.|
