This article originally appeared on October 13, 2014. Do Jeff Eats a big favor and give-it-a-read! Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, no-one really knows for sure how the future is gonna break for them, one way or the other! That said, this Tangerine “stuff” makes a whole lot of sense to me!

* Drink Tangerine Juice.
One of Jeff Eats’ favorite “drinks” is fresh squeezed tangerine juice.
Take a look at the below-article -Health Benefits of Tangerine Juice (juicebenefits.com)-I already knew the stuff was really good for me, but didn’t know that it was REALLY THAT GOOD for me!
Now, with tangerine season (November-April) nearing…Jeff Eats was thinking- just maybe, it wouldn’t hurt for you guys to plan on drinking an 8oz glass a day, could it? Just so we are straight, I got a “D” in junior high school biology- so if you go into diabetic shock or some other “shock” drinking this stuff- don’t-be suing Jeff Eats based on the claim that I’m some kind of a science/health expert!
By the way, Jeff Eats doesn’t “do” PASTEURIZED fresh squeezed tangerine juice…there are plenty of south Florida markets that have unpasteurized fresh squeezed tangerine juice. The reasons- 1. unpasteurized juice tastes better than the tinkered stuff- does, 2. pasteurizing cooks many of the nutrients out of the juice. Just so you know, don’t waste your time “looking” in Publix- EVERY juice it stocks is pasteurized…I usually catch mine at The Boys Farmers Market (Delray Beach) or Whole Foods Market.
One final thought, if you haven’t got time to go “chasing” around looking for unpasteurized fresh squeezed tangerine juice–you can always just buy some tangerines at your local supermarket and do whatever you want with them…
Health Benefits of Tangerine Juice.
Aside from being sweet and flavorful, tangerine juice has many benefits for your health. In terms of nutritional value and disease-fighting properties, tangerine juice has several advantages over orange juice. From protecting you from diseases and cancer to keeping you fuller longer, this juice has a health benefit for nearly everyone.
Nutritional Value – The Source Of The Health Benefits Of Tangerine Juice
Tangerine juice has all of the tangy flavor of orange juice but with added nutrition. This juice is an excellent source of many antioxidants, such as hesperetin, xanthins, lutein, beta-carotene, and narigenin. Anti-oxidants eliminate free radicals that can cause cancer, as well as fight aging. The anti-oxidant beta cryptoxanthin may reduce inflammation from arthritis. Lutein protects the eyes and helps you keep your eyesight sharp. The flavenoid tangeretin is a powerful agent that has been shown in studies to prevent skin cancer and helps stop the spread of breast-cancer cells. The flavonoids tangeretin and nobiletin have blood thinning and anti-inflammatory properties, which may reduce your risk of heart attacks.
Additionally, tangerine juice is chock-full of vitamin C, which boosts your immunity. Consuming adequate amounts of vitamin C helps your body fight infections from the common cold to the flu. In addition to helping increase your immune function, vitamin C helps your body absorb iron, and helps boost wound healing.
Tangerine juice contains folic acid and potassium, and it is also an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, which promotes regularity. Being regular has been proven to reduce your risk for developing some forms of cancer, such as colon cancer. The fiber also helps prevent your body from absorbing cholesterol. Fiber whisks some of the cholesterol content from your food out of your system, which can lower your blood levels of LDL, or “bad” cholesterol.
One serving of tangerine juice provides 20-percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A. This is 10-times as much vitamin A as orange juice. Vitamin A is instrumental in protecting your eyesight, promoting immune function and bone and tissue health. The vitamin A in tangerine juice may also stimulate cell growth and cell division.
Tangerines have natural germ-fighting properties. Tangerine juice may help your body defend itself against an infection from the staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Staphylococcus aureus is highly contagious and causes painful lesions and boils on the skin, particularly on the face or in other tender areas such as the groin or the armpits.
In addition to fighting harmful bacteria, the pectin in tangerine juice has been proven to help increase the number of beneficial bacteria in your intestines. These bacteria improve digestion and increases your body’s ability to defend against harmful bacteria which can cause inflammation and intestinal disorders. When harmful bacteria enter the gut, beneficial bacteria help usher the bad bacteria out of your system before they can cause an infection.
Tangerine juice is an excellent way to start your day if you are dieting. The fiber and carbohydrates in the juice help keep you feeling full, which will prevent over-indulgence later on. Additionally, the sweet finish of the tangerine flavor can help prevent the cravings for sugar that can derail a diet.
Starting your day with tangerine juice is a tasty and healthy way to boost your immunity, bolster your digestive and tissue health and protect your body against the ravages of cancer. Tangerine juice is powerful enough to do all of those things, yet it is so tangy-sweet and flavorful that you will forget all about its many health benefits and simply enjoy the flavor.
I agree with Jeff.
Going to start drinking tangerine juice.
Called Boys and it said Tangerine Juice won’t be in for a month or so.
Definitely going to start to drink this juice.
Bought some bags of tangerines in Publix and will eat whole fruit until juice shipment start to roll.
Just bought 6 32 oz bottles of tangerine juice at boys mkt.
Started drinking tangerine juice on your say so.
The Boys Market in Delray gets $2.39 for a qt of fresh juice. Best price around.
Have been drinking the juice for the past 2 weeks and its very tasty. Doing 8 ounces a day. Can’t hurt!
I have been drinking a glass of fresh tangerine juice since you mentioned it.
Hope it works.
My mandarin and tangerine trees are bending down from the weight of the fruit. I have given away 8 5 gallon pails of fruit in the past week and have barely made a dent. I use to squeeze and freeze but found the frozen juice ended up tasting bitter. In addition to the other health benefits Jeff mentioned, I read that it is excellent for anyone with breathing problems. Something in the juice opens the airways. I know it works for me. Off to squeeze some now. Next week we will begin harvesting lemons, grapefruit and limes. Oranges will not be ready until end of March. BTW, I have over 75 citrus trees which I started from seeds. Have had to stop as have run out of room to plant!!!!
In season I drink a quart of either Tangerine, Orange or Grapefruit juice a day. I’m not fooling but I’ve been doing this for 20 + years and I really haven’t been sick a day in all those years. By the way I’m 69 years old.
This is a very interesting article. Never realize how good tangerine juice was for you. Going to start to eat and drink more tangerines.
Also available at the Fresh Market
Went to The Boys today and bought 8 quarts of fresh juice at $2.49. The article makes sense so I’m going to drink 16 ounces a day. When out of season, switch to fresh orange and grapefruit. Simple plan that may do some good.
No bs here, for years I’ve been eating all kinds of crap. At the same time, I’ve been drinking unpasteurized orange, tangerine and grapefruit juice and eating watermelon and all kinds of nuts and berries and at the age of 77 I haven’t been to a doctor since I had cataract surgery some 14 years ago. Maybe it’s the genes but I suspect that the juice, fruit and nuts is the primary reason.
Love tangerines … every once in a while see people selling bushels on the side of a road. Worth checking out
For years, once a week my wife and I have been loading up with fresh juices at The Boys Market in Delray. Best prices. We also do the same with fresh fruits and vegetables there.
We eat plenty of burgers, hot dogs, pizzas, etc but we really believe that the juices etc balance out the foods that you would think aren’t the best for you.
So far so good, we are both in great shape with no major problems and we are both 69 years old.
I have been reading you literally forever.
I am 69 years old and eat everything that the cardiologists say you shouldn’t.
Since I was 17 I’ve been drinking at least 32 oz a day of fresh squeezed juices, like orange, grapefruit and tangerine. Throw in 2 cups of black coffee a day and all I can tell you is that other than a broken elbow and arm in a fall some 15 years ago I literally haven’t been sick a day in my life.
Call it what you want but fresh juice and fruits like watermelon and pineapple are the key to this game.
Assuming you’re not a diabetic etc, fresh tangerine juice is absolute gold for your health. Ive been drinking tangerine, grapefruit and orange juice for years and knock wood ive been pretty health my whole life.
You are so right on the fact that the juice has to be fresh and not pasteurized.
Here’s your great story on watermelon. Your recommendations on tangerine juice, pineapple, pistachio nuts etc are all right on the money.
I believe eat what you want, but everyday get at least 8oz of fresh juice into your body and you’ll be just fine.

***** Eat Watermelon!
Way-back on September 5, 2014 Jeff Eats did a story “Watermelon!” It’s reprinted down below.
The reason why I am mentioning WATERMELON is that I really-believe that eating this fruit helps-makes-keeps you healthy!
I maybe nuts, but- it’s now Watermelon Season and if I’m wrong, so what!
Watermelon tastes great and it’s dirt cheap to buy!

I don’t know about you guys, but when Labor Day hits, that means-end of Summer to Jeff Eats.
Taking that formula one-step further, Labor Day/End of Summer/next step- goodbye watermelon until next Summer.
As I’m sure you know, last Monday- Labor Day 2014 hit…and it got me to thinking about watermelon. Now no bs-ing here, on any given day Jeff Eats can eat 1/2 of a large watermelon-no problem at all. For the record, watermelon is one of my favorite fruits and I recall years ago hearing that it was a very “healthy” fruit.
With the above in mind, take a look at this Watermelon “story” I just read on howstuffworks.com…
For what it’s worth, I think this watermelon “info” is something to definitely have on file in the back of your head. As the late great- Sy Syms use to say, “An educated consumer is our best customer.”
Finally, maybe one of you scientists out there can explain this- How do you grow seedless watermelons from seedless watermelons?
Some foods are fun to eat, and watermelon is definitely one of them. That triangular wedge of bright red/white/green, sweet juiciness forbids us to take life too seriously and shouts, “SUMMER!!!” As if that weren’t enough, watermelon is packed full of nutrition, hydrates and is low-fat. While many of us think of watermelon as a great snack option, when you tally up its nutritive value, you might consider making this all-star a feature player in your cuisine.
Watermelons are an excellent source of several vitamins: vitamin A, which helps maintain eye health and is an antioxidant; vitamin C, which helps strengthen immunity, heal wounds, prevent cell damage, promote healthy teeth and gums; and vitamin B6, which helps brain function and helps convert protein to energy.
Tomatoes have been highly touted as a great source for lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that helps fight heart disease and several types of cancer — prostate cancer in particular. Watermelon, however, has the highest concentrations of lycopene of any fresh fruit or vegetable.
If your little ones don’t dig into their swiss chard, lima beans or spinach — all great sources of potassium — consider offering them a serving of watermelon instead. It is a great source of potassium, which helps muscle and nerve function, helps maintain the body’s proper electrolyte and acid-base balance, and helps lower the risk of high blood pressure.
Watermelon also contains the amino acids citrulline and arginine, which can help maintain arteries, blood flow and overall cardiovascular function.
Alone or in a fruit salad are the most common ways many of us eat watermelon. While eating the meat of the fruit is the best way to take advantage of all of its nutrients, this is one of my favorite bits of summer refreshment. I get a version of this from my local burrito truck. The key to making this great: don’t oversweeten it. With just a touch of sweetness, it’s heavenly.
Just bought 6 32oz Kenneshaw Tangerine Juices at The Boys in Delray for $2.39 each.
Very interesting article.
Are you the wrestler who held the heavyweight wrestling title a few years ago.
Just bought fresh tangerine juice at The Boys Market. The article makes a ton of sense.
