BALTIMORE, May 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Foodservice operators (restaurants, bars, cafeterias, caterers, hospitals, etc.) everywhere are feeling the squeeze of fresh lime prices which have increased almost 300% in some parts of the country.

However, some foodservice operators aren't worrying about lime prices because they are using True Lime, cold-pressed and crystallized lime made from 100 percent natural ingredients including lime oils and juices. Available in packets and in a juice mix, True Lime allows foodservice operators to enjoy the consistent fresh-squeezed taste of limes cost-effectively.

Used for recipe, beverage, drink and ingredient applications, True Lime Juice Mix comes in a case of ten (10) 100 gram pouches. Added to water, each pouch makes 32-ounces of lime juice in seconds and is equal to the juice of 22 limes. (A case of True Lime Juice Mix is equal to the juice of 220 limes.) This convenient format offers foodservice operators all the taste and aroma of fresh-squeezed limes while eliminating common concerns chefs have with whole limes: labor, fluctuating prices, waste and spoilage. True Lime's fresh squeezed taste also eliminates the off-flavor issues found with bottled juices and concentrates.

True Lime provides:

  • Fresh-squeezed, consistent lime taste
  • 100% natural ingredients
  • Consistent, cost-effective pricing
  • Consistent yield
  • Ability to use wet or dry
  • Minimal labor & no waste
  • No spoilage/oxidation
  • Small storage footprint

True Lime and True Lemon® were created by David Schleider, a trained chef and food product innovator, who wanted fresh lime and lemon taste without the labor, poor yield and spoilage issues that accompany fresh citrus. Schleider, founder and president of True Citrus, initially developed True Lemon and True Lime in single serve packets as an alternative to lemon and lime wedges. True Lemon and True Lime Juice Mix has been available for back-of-the-house use for over two years now and are being used by more and more foodservice operators in place of fresh citrus and bottled and frozen juice.

All True Citrus foodservice products, including True Lime and True Lemon Juice Mix, are distributed by Burry Foods and are available through major foodservice distributors and DOT Foods. For more information and samples, visit or call 866-885-3666.
