Lime or Citrus aurantiifolia

Lime, also known as acid lime or Mexican lime, belongs to the Rutaceae family and is botanically classified as Citrus aurantiifolia. It is a small citrus fruit with a tangy taste, native to tropical regions of Southeast Asia. Lime grows on small evergreen trees, typically measuring between 2 and 4 meters tall. Its leaves are oval and glossy, while its flowers are white and fragrant. Lime fruits are small, round to slightly oval, and their skin is thin and light green. When ripe, limes are dark green and contain juicy and tangy pulp.

How is Lime Powder Obtained?

Lime powder is a natural flavor, meticulously created from the drying and grinding of the fruit's thin peel. This meticulous process allows for the capture and preservation of the vibrant aromas and tangy flavors characteristic of lime.

The Journey of Lime Across the World

Originally from Malaysia and India, this small citrus fruit has traveled across continents and epochs to become an essential ingredient in cuisine and culture worldwide. In the 18th century, the term "citron vert" appeared in French to designate a lemon harvested or used in its green state. Later, it became associated with the lime, the fruit of the acid lime tree (or Citrus aurantiifolia). The fruit of the sweet lime tree (or Citrus latifolia) arrived in France in the 20th century.
