Did You Know?
· In addition to the great health benefits that lime offers, a dash of its juice in food adds ‘comp-lime-ment’ or fragrance, thereby giving it the desired taste. The peel left behind after a few good squeezes can be used to create a powerful pure oil. This oil can be used in a number of ways. Its popular uses are flavouring food and adding a fresh fragrance to a variety of products.
· Similar to other citrus fruits, lime offers a plethora of vitamins and minerals, including potassium. Potassium is important for maintaining nerve function and healthy blood pressure levels. The fruit is also linked to antioxidants and bioflavonoids that researchers believe could lower the likelihood of cancer.
