Since 2006, Guiding Stars has been making nutrition as easy as 1, 2, 3. We analyze foods using a patented algorithm and translate the nutrition information to a rating system that is easy to understand.
This time of year, we see orange foods all around us. We associate orange with autumn, and also with energy and vibrancy. Of course, we know that some of our favorite orange foods come by their color naturally (although there are some instances where might be fooled—more on that later). Other foods we know are colored somehow to appear orange. This is a little primer on the various ways that foods can acquire their orangey hue—and why those methods may impact your food selection criteria.
Great nutrition starts in your kitchen. Browse through our extensive recipe database for star-worthy recipes that will inspire you and make feeding your family nutritious food a little easier.

Nicole Friedman from Retail Business Services, one of our valued clients, interviewed me about safe, socially distanced, and healthy ways to enjoy Halloween this year.
We've talked about squash and roots this month. Both categories offer a wide variety of naturally orange foods and the nutritional benefits that come with them. The food with shares its very name with the color is less associated with fall, but oranges begin their season in fall. Orange juice is the most ubiquitous use of the fruit, and it does have merits as a natural sugar. The fruit can also star, however, in a wide variety of dishes from sweet to savory.
