This zesty, highly aromatic fruit is a healthy addition to any diet. Used widely in many cuisines to accent flavour – Thai, Mexican, Vietnamese as well as being an important addition in lots of desserts and cocktails! Freshly squeezed and added to warm water it is a great aid to digestion, or to olive oil and vinegar for a zesty salad dressing. Also an important ingredient in guacamole.

Wash before eating.

* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed and are not uniform in size. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Taste is what we believe in, because it’s what’s inside that counts. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.

Health benefits

Like lemons, limes are high in vitamin C and are an incredibly healthy addition to your diet. They have an irresistible aroma which causes your mouth to water and this aids primary digestion (the digestive saliva floods your mouth even before you taste it). The natural acidity of lime does the rest. The essential oils present in lime aid in reducing both body weight and food consumption. Also, the citric acid present in it is an excellent fat burner. The high levels of soluble fiber found in lime make it ideal dietary support to help regulate the body’s absorption of sugar into the bloodstream.
