Organically grown oranges contain as much as 30 percent more vitamin C than those grown in conventional orchards, according to chemical analysis conducted at Truman State University in Kirksville, MO. Theo Clark, the visiting professor who did the study, hypothesized that because conventional oranges are larger and have a deeper orange hue that they would contain higher vitamin levels. "We were expecting twice as much vitamin C in the conventional oranges," he said. The findings were reported in June at the Great Lakes regional meeting of the American Chemical Society.
