Citrus health and nutrition literature review (CT20004)

Key research provider: Food Bytes

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.
