Limes are bright green fruits that are naturally acidic and therefore sour in flavour. Limes are most often used as recipe ingredients, or sliced as a garnish for water, herbal tea or alcoholic beverages.
Lime consists of water and is an extremely good source of vitamin C. It is also rich in dietary fiber and minerals like calcium, iron, potassium, copper, magnesium, and phosphorous. The best thing about lime is that it has the least amount of calories, carbohydrates, and fats. Moreover, lime peel and pulp are also rich in diverse phytochemicals like polyphenols and terpenes.
