Calories in Oranges and Orange Juices

The average orange contains 37 calories. It is low calorie and nutritious. High in vitamin C, a great protector of the body's health, an orange, like a banana, is easy to carry around and eat. While you can eat quite a few oranges without the calories piling up, beware of orange juices, especially orange juice drinks with added sugars.

Be sure to get oranges that are in season in your area. They tend to be freshest and juiciest of all.

Keep an eye out for what kind of orange juice or juice drink you are consuming. Orange flavored juice drinks, especially the juice box, tend to be high in added sugars and calories. A freeze squeezed natural orange juice is lower and better for you (does not usually contain additives or artificial flavorings).
