Citrus health and nutrition literature review (CT20004)
What’s it all about?
This investment is reviewing the current evidence-based health benefits of Australian citrus (including oranges, orange juice, mandarins, grapefruit, lemons and limes). The information compiled will be used to inform and develop a health and nutritional educational program that will provide industry and consumers with up to date information about the benefits of consuming Australian citrus products.
The project team will:
- Create a report that presents the scientific findings in a consumer-friendly manner and can be used as an educational tool by industry, health professionals and for future marketing campaigns.
- Develop new compelling key messages supported by scientific evidence, industry and consumer audiences.
- Ensure claims and key messages comply with the Australian New Zealand Food Standards Code and Australian Consumer law (ACL).
- Identify gaps in existing research and propose recommendations for future research investment based on health benefits that citrus fruits can offer.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Citrus Fund.
