Apart from enhancing the taste in your baked goods, lime zest is fueled with many health benefits. It contains antioxidants and limonene which helps with heart burn. It is also a great source of vitamin C which will boost your immune system, calcium to help bone-building and beta-carotene which is a form of vitamin A.
Here are some TIPS on Lime Zest to take in consideration:
If possible, try using the zest of an ORGANIC LIME. When it comes to eating the peels, organic is better. This is because the skin has less chemicals.
Make sure to only use the part with color (the green part) and not so much the white part which will only make it bitter.
Always rinse & dry before using.
So it’s safe to say next time you want to impress your family or friends with a special dish, try adding lime zest to your recipe and see how much your guests will thank you for such a delicious and HEALTHY treat.
