... and what do marmalade manufacturers do with the insides of their fruit?

By Jove, I think he's onto something!

Actually, I suspect that a lot of orange peel does end up in orange drinks of one form or another. (Grabs can from bin) 'comminuted orange'. (Grabs dictionary) Hmm, pulverised orange.

I suspect that's the answer - the easy squeezings go into the juice cartons, the rest of the fruit is pureed, concentrated and shipped in bulk as flavourings.

Yes, orange oil ocurred to me after I posted, but that only uses up the zest, leaving quite a lot of bulky pulp behind... I expect it could go into animal feed.
