Lemon as a vitamin-rich superfood!
Lemons are truly powerful fruits with both antibiotic and antiseptic properties. Lemons are also highly praised for their cleansing properties, helping to flush out toxins from the body. Moreover, they are also packed with vitamins and minerals. These powerful fruits are rich in vitamins C and B, as well as minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, silicon, copper and potassium. Lemons are also rich in bioflavonoids, which help boost the immune system and reduce inflammation.
● support your immune system;

● help to prevent the formation of kidney stones;
● create an alkaline environment in the body, supporting cells, lymphatic system and other organs;
● help with weight concerns.
What is freeze-dried lemon powder?
Freeze-dried lemon powder is made from fresh lemons that have been dried and then ground into a powder. As the whole process takes place at a very low temperature (below 42 degrees Celsius), all the useful vitamins, minerals and nutrients are nicely preserved in the powder, with only the water removed for preservation purposes. Therefore, the nutritional value of lemon powder is practically equivalent to fresh fruit, but in a different form.
What are the advantages of lemon powder over fresh lemons?
The main advantages of lemon powder are its convenience to use and that it provides exciting possibilities of use. Because the sour taste that is so typical of fresh lemon remains in the freeze-dried powder, it allows you to easily add lemon juice to your favourite dishes. It is also a great way to keep vitamin-rich lemons at hand at home and, if necessary, conveniently take them with you – unlike fresh fruit, there is no risk of the powder spoiling. The freeze-dried powder still retains all the nutritional value, as well as its smell and taste. Most of the water has simply been removed from the fruits to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria and extend the life of the product.
What can you make with lemon powder?
Freeze-dried lemon powder is perfect for making smoothies, raw cakes and various drinks, as well as mixed with muesli, raw bars or sauces. If you are a lemonade fan, you can easily make a healthy lemonade! If you prefer more salty bites, mix freeze-dried lemon powder into your favourite spice mix, dipping sauces or sour soups. It is easy to use – just take the right amount of lemon powder from the package with a spoon and mix it into your favourite food. No washing, peeling, zesting or sticky fingers from the juice!
TRY THIS: Healthy lemonade
If you have never made lemonades before, now is the time to try it out! Lemon powder makes the preparation of the drink particularly convenient as you can happily skip the process of washing lemons, squeezing the juice and cleaning up the kitchen! Here is the recipe for you:

RECOMMENDATION: If possible, store the lemon powder in its original packaging and make sure that the packaging is closed properly after each use to prevent moisture from getting in. Exposure to moisture may cause the powder to change texture and become lumpy.
