True Citrus, a food company in the US, has formulated new 100% all-natural juice Mix, True Lemon, for foodservice industry. The new juice mix is said to provide consistent taste and performance with exact pH (2.3) of fresh-squeezed lemons.
Each pouch of the juice mix, when added to water, makes 32oz of lemon juice in seconds which is equal to the juice of 22 lemons, the food company said.
Cold-pressed and crystallized lemon, True Lemon Juice Mix, is available in a carton of ten 100gm pouches. This format eliminates common concerns chefs have with whole lemons, including labor, fluctuating prices, waste and spoilage.
True Lemon creator David Schleider said the new juice mix provides the fresh squeezed taste and aroma of the entire lemon and not just the tartness of juice.
"We're very excited about introducing True Lemon in this format for use in all beverage applications at the bar or back-of-the-house because it provides a great-tasting, cost-effective solution for all foodservice operations," Schleider said.
True Lemon is available through major foodservice distributors while True Lime Juice Mix will be available early September.
The product portfolio of True Citrus features True lime, True Orange, True Grapefruit, True Lemonade, True Raspberry Lemonade, in addition to True Lemon.
