Product Review – True Lemon/Lime/Orange and Grapefruit

*Note – this IS NOT a paid endorsement
These products are awesome to use for cooking. They are just crystallized citrus with simple and clean ingredients, natural flavors and no artificial sweeteners or preservatives. They are also gluten free and Non-GMO.

These are great for using in drinks and cocktails, sprinkling on food as a salt substitute or using in recipes such as this Rosemary Citrus Chicken I made recently. Use in dessert recipes, sprinkle on fish, pork or chicken. They give any dish a real citrus burst! (I will share the recipe on a future post) Out of fresh lemons, limes, oranges or grapefruit but have a recipe that calls for juice, use these products instead. Got a recipe using lemon pepper seasoning? Kick it up a little by adding a little true lemon in it…

The True Lime and True Lemon are available in shaker form but they are hard to come by in the grocery stores. I can only find the True Lemon packets locally. The grapefruit flavor must be new and I haven’t that flavor yet, but I am looking forward to it.

You can visit their website at true , where they have a lot of information and recipe ideas or follow them on twitter @truelemon. To order a sample kit from Amazon, click on the link below.
