About Fresh Lemon

Botanical Name: Citrus Limon
Indian Name: Bara Nimbu, Pahari Nimbu
Keshavam International is soaring high among the topmost Exporters and Suppliers of Green Lemon.
Also known as Citrus Limon, lemon is classified under a tiny evergreen tree within the plant family of Rutaceae. Although the actual origin is a mystery, it is believed to have originated from South Asia, mainly within the North-eastern part of India.
The exclusive juice of this yellow fruit is beneficial for both culinary and non-culinary purposes, and is used across the globe. Moreover; the skin and pulp of a lemon are extremely suitable for cooking and baking. Its juice has around 5-6% citric acid and a pH level of about 2.2, which contribute to its sharp taste. Undoubtedly, the incredible sour taste of lemon juice is the prime ingredient in dishes and drinks like lemon meringue pie and lemonade.
A significant fruit of the citrus class, lemon holds a notable position in the list of top health foods. It’s often mistaken for lime. However; lime is a tiny species as compared to lemon that has a thick rind. This oval shaped and rough skinned lemon gets a pale-yellow pulp when ripe, with plenty of juice and a few seeds. Assam (a part of North-east India), China or Northern Burma are believed to have grown lemons at first.

Origin and Distribution

Lemon is known to have its origin from the North-west parts of India that slope to an altitude of 4,000 ft. It was likely cultivated initially in South-east Asia during primitive days, and the 12th - 13th century timeline marked its arrival in Europe. Now every tropical and subtropical country grows lemons on a wider scale; especially the United States, West Indies, France, Spain, Portugal, and New South Wales. It is in-fact a homegrown fruit in India, where it is cultivated in gardens and tiny orchards in states like Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Mysore.

Nutrition and Phytochemicals

Loaded with vitamin C, lemon yields 64% of the Daily Value (DV) from a 100 g reference amount (as in the table). Other vital nutrients are present in less quantities. A lot of phytochemicals are present in this little fruit; some of them are terpenes, polyphenols, and tannins. The amount of citric acid in lemon juice is more than that in lime juice (i.e. around 47 g/l), which is almost twice the amount of citric acid found in grapefruit juice, and nearly five times the citric acid in orange juice.

Lemon Uses

Culinary Purposes
Lemon juice and its peel are all time favourites in food preparations and drinks. It is entirely suitable to make lemon curd, marmalade, and lemon liqueur. And when it comes to garnishing scrumptious dishes and drinks; its slices and rind come in handy! What more? Lemon zest is its grated outer layer, which is perfect to give refreshing flavour to rice, baked dishes, puddings, and many others.
Lemon juice is the life of this batch - lemonade, cocktails and soft drinks - all are incomplete without it. It is a top ingredient in marinades made for fish, as its acid is said to balance amines by turning them into ammonium salts. Additionally, its acid tenderizes meat by slightly hydrolyzing rigid collagen fibres.
Lemon juice is also used in kitchens of the United Kingdom when making pancakes, particularly on Shrove Tuesday. Moreover; it serves as a good preservative to denature enzymes in fruits such as bananas, apples, and avocados that are likely to get oxidized and turn brown once cut.
The Moroccans store lemons in barrels or jars of salt. This makes the salt penetrate through its outer skin, soften and cleanse them for a long-lasting preservation. Such lemons are utilized in a diverse range of dishes. One may also find preserved lemons in Italian, Sicilian, Greek, and French foods.
Lemon peels can also be used to produce pectin (a polysaccharide found in food and other items) as a gelling agent and stabilizer.
Lemon skin contains oil-filled cells through which the oil is extracted. The cells are broken in a machine that then separates the oil with a water spray. This oil and water mixture is filtered out by centrifugation.
Lemon tree leaves are used to manufacture tea, and food preparations such as meat and seafood.

Other Lemon Uses

Lemon has been a major commercial source of citric acid prior to the evolution of methods based on fermentation.
The wonderful fragrance of lemon oil is one of the best picks in aromatherapy. Lemon oil aroma boosts relaxation by keeping the human immune system intact.

Natural Benefits and Healing Properties

This little fruit is associated with many curative properties and health benefits. The skin, essential oil in the rind, and squeezed juice of a ripe lemon are favoured among various medicinal uses. A pale yellow coloured volatile oil is extracted from the fresh outer layer of its pericarp. This oil is bitter in taste but is extremely treasured in medicine, used in treatment of gastric issues and improving appetite.
The strained and extracted juice of a ripe lemon is regarded as an antiscorbutic and refrigerant. Its high potassium content helps terminate toxins from one’s body. Lemon juice also stimulates bile secretion and is suitable in curing diseases like jaundice. The bark of its tree is used as a medicine for fever, whereas seeds are used to remove worms from the intestine.
There’s no doubt that lemon is a valued source of vitamin C. In fact, its juice has more vitamin than the entire fruit - around 60 ml per 100 gram. It also has an adequate amount of vitamin B, which makes it an incredible medicine to prevent and cure scurvy.
Oral Problems
The richness of vitamin C in lemon aids in nourishing gums and teeth. It is also potent in preventing and treating acute inflammations of the gum edges, pyorrhea, and other oral problems.
Throat Issues
Throat disorders like choking sensation, catarrh, and itching sensitivities are cured with lemon. This is done by roasting a ripe unpeeled lemon and taking its one teaspoon juice with somewhat honey or boiled water mixed in honey.
Soles and Heels
If feet or heels of feet are burning, they can be massaged with sliced lemon. A high amount of toxins are released from the pores of the feet. Applying this yellow fruit enhances such elimination and helps soothe the feet.
Digestive Problems
A ripe lemon serves as an ideal appetizer. Lemon juice is said to promote the flow of saliva and gastric juice, and considered as a remarkable digestive agent. It banishes intestinal worms and removes unwanted gases from the digestive tract. Issues such as dyspepsia, biliousness, and constipation can be treated with it. Taking juice of half a lemon with some water also relieves heartburn smoothly.
Lemon also aids youthful health and skin along with curing problems such as fevers, hemorrhage, obesity, cholera.


About 19.4 million tonnes of lemons (along with limes as a report) were said to be produced in 2018 around the globe. The leading producers like India, China, Mexico, Turkey, Argentina, and Brazil together accounted for approximately 65% of worldwide production.
