Cool product - True lime and lemon

I've been using this freeze dried lime and lemon juice for a year or so and thought you might want to try it as well. It comes in single packets or loose and tastes amazingly like the real stuff. In my area it's a little tough to find but it's available online http://www.amazon.com/True-Lemon-Ora...ds=true+citrus

The best uses I've found (besides an emergency substitution for the real deal) are in baking when you want the zing of the acid but don't want the liquid. They are also really nice to add to bottle water.

Last night I made some guacamole using the lime, rehydrating it per the instructions prior to use. No flavor difference from the real thing.

I LOVE True Lime and Lemon!!

I use them all the time. They taste pretty much exactly like fresh lemon/lime juice.

I sprinkle it on fish and chicken, add to dry rubs, etc.

They also make orange and grapefruit (or so I'm told about the grapefruit, Ive never seen it)

They carry it in most supermarkets here, usually near the sugar or sometimes by the coffee and tea

I love True Lime, Lemon, and Orange! I haven't seen the grapefruit, though. I find it in either the powdered drink aisle or sometimes with the baking products.

I mostly use it with bottled water when I'm out and about - on walks - not wanting to mess with fresh fruit.

I'm not fond of the Orange one, but the lime and lemon are lovely. You can get either the individual packets or a shaker bottle here.

I'll look in my local grocery store for this! Sounds like something really nice to have on hand.

I'm thinking this would work nicely with the Soda Stream machine!

I understand they make a drink mix (sweetened) but the stuff I use is straight juice - pucker power and no sugar. It's a really handy thing to have a round and a pretty good substitute for the real thing.

I was camping last weekend and even tried making a whiskey sour with the lemon ..not bad.
