Vita-Pakt Lemon Peel: Discover the Power of Citrus

Vita-Pakt Lemon Peel will transform your food and beverage creations. Sustainably sourced and processed, this natural ingredient is derived from fresh California lemons. Our lemon trees are primarily grown along the state’s Citrus Belt, a location known for its numerous sun-drenched hills and valleys. This ideal agricultural environment results in lemons that are fragrant, juicy, and fresh. 

At Vita-Pakt, we adhere to the strictest guidelines in the world to ensure the value of our lemons isn’t lost through the processing of the peel. Vita-Pakt Lemon Peel is washed, shaved, and dried and then cut to specification (-10 +30 mesh). Granules are then tested for oil content to ensure they deliver consistent flavor throughout. We don’t add any artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, ensuring you only receive the highest quality product when you choose Vita-Pakt citrus ingredients.
