Pith fact, not fiction

A question for the Nutritionists/ dieters: what is the nutritional value of orange pith? Specifically, the white spongy stuff between the bitter skin of the orange and its flesh. I like to eat this and can’t find a calorie count for it. Thanks

I can't find any calorie counts or anything like that, but can tell you that the part of the orange you're talking about is called the pith.

Slkinsey. You are so right. Mods, could you change the title to pith? It is misleading.

[Fixed it from "pulp", and let's have a brief moment of silence for a good title pun ruined by facts.]

No nutritional value -- it's just roughage.

I always call it styrofoam 'cause that's what a friend did, in college.
