Mmmh got confused it too before but when i read this
Lime (Citrus aurantifolia) is a citrus tree with a fruit that contains a very high level of vitamin C. British sailors were issued a daily allowance of lemons or limes to prevent scurvy, giving them the nickname Limey.

Limes are small roundish bright green fruit with a pungent flavour. However, if they stay on the tree for a long time they turn yellow and resemble a small roundish lemon. Lime juice is used in cooking and in soft drinks, cocktails and limeade (like lemonade). Some like to eat them as fruits, as did the Limeys. Lime extracts and essential oils are frequently used in perfumes, cleansing products, and for aromatherapy. __________________

The juices will keep, refrigerated in glass, for quite some time, and even longer if frozen, but be reminded that the vitamin C benefits will dissipate within a matter of days.

This doesn't keep the juice from being useful for mixed drinks, baking or cooking. It doesn't lose its acidity.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
