Nutritional Value of Citrus Fruits

A basic Citrus Fruit List reveals that a 100-gram serving of orange, grapefruit, or tangerine has anywhere from 30 to 55 calories, averaging about 10 grams of total carbohydrates, and an average of 9 grams of sugar. 

Oranges and grapefruit have low glycemic index scores, which means their natural sugars don't cause too sharp an increase in blood sugar.

Citrus fruits are loaded with antioxidants, fiber, and flavonoids, as well as being rich in Vitamin C, with one small orange containing 53 milligrams.
