OVERVIEW:

Lime is a member of the powerful citrus family and the species Citrus x aurantifolia is the Key Lime which is valued for its unique bitter flavor compared with other limes. It has a higher acidity, a stronger aroma, and a thinner rind compared to the Persian lime. This lime peel powder is a suitable substitute for traditional limes or any citrus fruit peel. Limes are among the world's most popular citrus fruits and can be found in cuisines across the world in both baked goods, savory and sweet dishes or in a multitude of beverages.

 

Lime peel is a nutritional powerhouse and contains a spectrum of vitamins (especially vitamin C), minerals, and fiber. It also stimulates the appetite by encouraging the release of gastric juices to digest food. Lime peels are rich in antioxidants which are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body. Limes have many widely known uses, adding a refreshing zest to your water, cleaning household items, and adding flavor to numerous dishes are just the start. Limes deserve to be in the limelight.
