True Lemon, Lime, Orange and Grapefruit
By Kim Biegacki pistachyoo
I wanted to share a product with you that I use ALL the time. I use it mostly in my water as a drink and use all the different flavors. The lime is my favorite; however, they just came out with the grapefruit (very light in flavor) and it's delicious too!!! My husband Anthony & I both try and drink our daily amount of water but sometimes it is hard. This helps out alot cause it flavors our drinks and we can add some Stevia and/or Truvia and it becomes a sweet delicious water. :-) I can take the packets with me wherever I go.
I have also started using it in cooking as well. It is just wonderful.
If you haven't tried it out I hope that you do. They sell it at the grocery stores and WalMart carries it as well.
Drop a line and let me know if you already use it or are going to try.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Have you used True Lemon or Lime before or do you have severe allergies? Just wondering what your concerns are?
Here is the list that are on the boxes that I bought.
Lime ingredients: citric acid, lactose, lime juice, lime oil, maltodextrin, ascoribc acid (Vitamin C).
Lemon ingredients: citric acid, organic evaporated cane juice, lemon oil, lemon juice, stevia, guar gu, ascorbic acid (vitamin c), and tumeric (for color) contains soy.
The other boxes are all similiar and almost exact ingredients.
These are the two that are mainly used. Well, hope this helps your concerns. :-)
