These health benefits of citrus fruit have mainly been attributed to the presence of bioactive compounds such as ferrulic acid hydrocinnamic acid cyanidin glucoside hisperidine vitamin C carotenoid and naringin
content (Abeysinghe et al.
In the present paper, the flavanone contents (hesperidin, naringin
, naringenin, and poncirin) of commercial and homemade orange juice originating from different places in Brazil were evaluated.
