Fruits and vegetables in season by month: January
What fruits and vegetables are in season in Winter? January means citrus fruits, the best source of vitamin C during cold days. Here’s the list of all seasonal foods to eat and buy this month.
January is the month of citrus fruits, the best source of vitamin C and bioflavonoids that help us strengthen the immune system and prevent seasonal ailments. To better absorb their active ingredients, citrus fruits should be eaten whole (don’t eat the peel unless it’s from certified organic farming, otherwise we’ll most probably eat pesticides). Other allies against cold are dried fruits, which are nutritious and energizing as well as excellent ingredients to prepare savoury and light sweets.

Mint has many health benefits, but in food it’s often accompanied by artificial green colourings. Instead, Galatea has created a green mint ice cream in a completely natural way.
We’re talking about Galatea, a company that produces semi-finished products for artisanal ice creams using high quality ingredients, natural colouring, excluding thickeners and hydrogenated fats, respecting the environment and supporting the less fortunate.
The mad rush to fake food, like fake meat made with genetically-modified soy, ignores the importance of the diversity of our foods and culinary cultures. It’s a recipe to accelerate the destruction of the Planet and our health.
Like with all foods, the quality of an ice cream can be discerned by reading its label. An expert explains how to do this, and tells us how their company steers clear of chemicals, using only natural ingredients to produce an excellent and “free” ice cream.
