Citrus peels have an impressive range of food and medicinal uses. The present study was conducted to determine the difference between two types of orange peel; the first is whole and the second without albedo. The peels were separated from fruits, shade dried, powdered and analyzed (physicochemical and microbiological). The orange peels were found to contain low water content (especially powder without albedo), even a very low source of protein and minerals as well for both types of powders.
For the microbiological analysis, the results indicated that the whole orange peel is very infected purport with the powder containing no albedo.PDF
