I contacted True Citrus and asked to review their products,because I love True Lime, I have used it in several recipes before but my favorite thing to use it in is my homemade salsa!
I received a huge assortment of products from True Citrus and I was so very excited to try them.
The first items I tried were the drink mixes. The drink mixes are 100% natural flavors you add to your water. The flavors include: Original Lemonade, Mango Orange, Peach Lemonade, Black Cherry Limeade and Grapefruit . Each flavor is made with 100% all natural ingredients like real lemons, oranges or grapefruits. I tried and liked them all but my favorite is the Mango Orange. I thought this flavor tasted absolutely delicious. At only 5 to 10 calories per flavor drink mix pack, I could use several packs a day and not feel guilty at all. True Citrus is real flavor from real fruit with no preservatives and no artificial additives.
True Citrus crystalized lemon, True Orange crystalized orange and True Lime crystalized : Like I said before, I’ve used this product in the past and think it is great. There are a few recipes I use this in. Replacing fresh lime juice with the crystalized lime is so much easier than ensuring you keep fresh limes on hand. I’ve recently just used True Lemon for sprinkling on top of chicken breasts for a quick and easy lemon chicken dinner. For your convenience, this product comes in both a shake bottle and individual packets. The individual packets are also very great for adding a “splash” of lemon to your water while on the go. I love keeping some in my purse especially because I do not trust lemon slices from restaurants.
True Lemon can be used for more than just in your water and cooking with too. You can also use it for marinating!
I also read on the True Citrus website that high grilling temperatures can create dangerous compounds in meat and a new study shows that marinating meats in lemon juice or vinegar can reduce harmful compounds developed during cooking, compounds linked to aging and chronic disease.

True Citrus is more than just great tasting products. A serving of True Citrus crystalized lemon contains 0 calories, 0 carbs, 0 sugars, no artificial sweeteners and gives an adult 25% of their daily Vitamin C requirements. When a product is made from the freshest lemons, limes and oranges you can be assured of quality and taste.
True Citrus was generous enough to send me 10 bags like the ones I received full of goodies to give away to friends and family. Everybody I gave a bad to was so excited to try the products and were very grateful. I have heard nothing but great compliments of the brand from the people I gave the products to. When I run out of my True Citrus it will definitely be on my grocery list. I love it!
