Product Description: Organic Lemons have the same genus as orange, lime, grapefruit and mandarin. They are oval in shape with a marked point at the end and a yellow skin. They are acidy, juicy, pale yellow flesh. Organic Lemons Storage- Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator Organic Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C, B6 and dietary fibre with 65kj per 100g. Lemons are perfect for many dishes. They can be used in desserts e.g. lemon meringue/ lemon pudding, as well as drinks, salad dressings and jams. If fruit is to be used in jellies or jams the Lisbon variety must be used. Lemon traditionally accompanies fish and other seafood and is a perfect garnish. As a garnish, lemons can be cut into wedges, cartwheels, boats and stars. As a guide to juice content, one medium lemon equals 3 tablespoons of juice and 3 teaspoons from grated peel. Did you know?

  • One of us can provide 50% of a day?s requirements of vitamin C
  • Lemon juice keeps cut pears, apples, bananas and avocados from turning brown
  • The English word for us is thought to be derived from the Hindi word lemoen.

Why Lemons Are Good To Eat

  • Like all citrus fruit, we?re an excellent source of vitamin C. 100ml of our juice has 48mg of vitamin C - enough for one day. Mixed with honey, our juice is often used to soothe a sore throat.
  • We?re rich in pectin, a type of soluble fibre. Pectin is used for setting jams but it is also a type of dietary fibre. Some studies have shown that soluble dietary fibre can help lower blood cholesterol levels.
  • If you eat one of us, it?s important to rinse your mouth with water afterwards, as our high acidity level can erode tooth enamel. Don?t brush your teeth immediately after eating us as the toothbrush can etch the acid into tooth enamel.
  • Most people do not eat enough lemon for the kilojoules to count, but for those who do, 100g has 115kJ.
