True Citrus | True Lemon, True Lime, True Grapefruit and True Orange

Today I would like to introduce you to the food & beverage company called True Citrus who makes cold-processed, crystallized lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit mixes that can be used for beverages, teas and in dessert and baking recipes. The True Citrus line of products are 100% natural and made from real fruit.

My Review: Today I am reviewing the True Citrus products for cooking, baking & beverages and the product is packaged into packets and there are 32 packets per box. I received 4 boxes for the review which are as follows: (1) True Lemon (2) True Orange (3) True Grapefruit (4) True Lime.

The True Lemon is easy to use and you can use it in hot & iced teas, sodas and drinks and use it in your baking and dessert recipes instead of using lemon juice. If your recipe calls for juice of 1 lemon you would use 6 packets of True Lemon + 3 Tbsp. of water.

The True Orange is also easy to use and you can use it to flavor water, hot & iced teas, sodas, drinks like smoothies, in salad dressings, baking recipes & dessert recipes. If you recipe calls for 1 Tbsp. of orange juice you would use 2 packets of the True Orange.

The True Lime is also used in cooking, baking and in beverages and is made from real limes. If the recipe calls for juice of 1 lime you would use 4 packets of True Lime along with 2 Tbsp. of water in your recipe.

The True Grapefruit is unsweetened and made from real grapefruits and is primarily used to flavor water and other beverages. You would pour one packet into 16 oz. of water, shake it up and you are ready to enjoy your newly made beverage.

Quick Tip: If your kids love homeade flavored ice pops, pudding pops, juice pops, etc. Then try mixing these products with water and freezing it in plastic popsicle molds like I did. The kids here loved it!

Overall Impression: I love the convenience of the True Citrus products! They are shelf-stable so you can keep them in your pantry for whenever you need them. I love that they are 100% natural and made from REAL citrus fruits! You no longer have to rush out to your grocery store and buy fresh citrus fruit when you need them for recipes. Just keep a few boxes of this product stocked up in your pantry and you are ready to go!

I would like to thank True Citrus for participating in this product review here on the Shakin and Bakin Foodie Blog! We love your products!
