January K-Food, Hallabong & CheonhyehyangRich in Vitamin C and Antioxidants…Good for Relieving Fatigue and Preventing Colds

Hallabong is a type of Korean tangerine. Its name is a combination of “Halla” (the name of the highest mountain on Jeju Island) and “bong” (which means “top” in Korean). That is because the fruit’s top looks like the peak of Halla Mountain. Hallabong has a high sugar content (about 13-14°Bx), soft flesh, and abundant juice. Cheonhyehyang is a Korean premium tangerine whose name is translated as “fragrance from heaven.” A hybrid of orange and tangerine, it is characterized by a thinner peel than that of other tangerine varieties. Other advantages of Cheonhyehyang include its high sugar content, ample juice, and delicate scent.   

Both Hallabong and Cheonhyehyang are suitable as diet food due to their low calories. They are also rich in vitamin C, so they are good for relieving fatigue and preventing colds. Furthermore, studies show that the Korean varieties of tangerines have anti-cancer and anti-aging effects because they contain many carotenoids.

Hallabong and Cheonhyehyang are steadily exported to foreign countries such as the US, China (Hong Kong), Singapore, and the Azerbaijan Republic.
