According to Health, one orange contains about 2.3 grams of fiber and a tangerine has about 1.6 grams. Most of the fiber in citrus fruit is soluble fiber. Dr. Wendy Bazilian claims that soluble fiber is linked to lower levels of cholesterol and regulates glucose levels. Citrus fruits also have insoluble fiber, which is good for the digestive system.
