Did you know our organic lemons are air flown in from Europe to prevent the need for chemical coatings? Our lemons are free from pre-harvest pesticides and post harvest fungicides. Plus they are never coated in petroleum based preservative wax to extend their shelf life.
We import them from Spain, where over 4,000 hectares are dedicated to organic lemon production, leading the EU with ~100,000 tonnes produced annually. Spain has the necessary hot dry summers and relatively low humidity for producing fruit with little peel blemish.
This fresh whole organic lemon juice brings you the benefits of juice, pith and peel with their powerful flavonoid antioxidants.
The peel has Naringenin to stimulate the liver to burn excess fat and reduce blood sugar, triglycerides and cholesterol. Hesperidin beneficial for the cardiovascular system also reduces bone loss and lipids post menopause and induces cancer cell apoptosis, while d-Limonene improves digestion and has similar anti-cancer properties.
Apart from fibre, the pith also contains Diosmin which increases lymphatic contractions improving the micro-circulation of the body. Interestingly citrus pith has been used in Ayurveda for thousands of years to improve circulation and blood flow.
