Expert tip from James Bradfield, dietician & nutritionist

"Seasonal satsumas are a good source of vitamin C and folic acid.

"Like all citrus fruit, they help in the prevention and treatment of colds, coughs and bleeding gums, while the pith and segment walls contain antioxidant flavonoids, which work with vitamin C to protect the body from damaging free radicals.

"Flavonoids also inhibit the formation of blood clots, so they’re an important nutrient for people at risk of strokes."
