How is lime concentrate made?
Lime concentrate is made by firstly juicing the inner flesh of the lime, then heating the resultant juice. As the fruit’s water content evaporates, a condensed solution is formed, around six times the strength of a regular juice.
Smaller in volume than an NFC juice, the lime concentrate can then be moved and stored easily in bulk, before being returned to its single strength state by re-adding the water.

This makes it very easy to transport and store, because it has a low volume (but a very strong flavour). We source our limes from the very best lime growing regions of Peru and Mexico, using the world’s most popular variety – key lime.
From 19kg frozen pails to 25kg bags to 250kg drums, our lime juice concentrate is available in a wide variety of formats to best suit your business needs. We can also offer both cloudy lime juice concentrate and clear lime juice concentrate, ranging between 42° and 45° Brix.
What is lime juice concentrate good for?
Limes are one of the most popular citrus fruits on the market and can be used for a wide variety of applications spanning both the food and drinks manufacturing industries. Within the drinks manufacturing industry, lime juice is most often used in juices, smoothies, soft drinks and alcoholic drinks.
It is also used within the food manufacturing industry. A citrussy hit of lime juice can provide bundles of flavour to many dishes, and is particularly popular in a variety of dishes, from meat to fish to vegetarian dishes.
What is the difference between concentrate and not from concentrate lime juice?
Lime juice concentrate is made by pressing fresh limes and juicing the pulp. This is then heated, so the liquid evaporates. This leaves a thick solution, which ends up being 6 times stronger than normal lime juice. When it reaches you, you can either use it as it is or simply add water to bring it back to its original strength.
On the other hand, NFC juices are produced without water removal and heating, which results in a less processed and therefore results in a 100% ‘natural’ juice. The downside of NFC juices is that they normally have a shorter shelf life and take up more volume in terms of storage.
What are the health benefits of lime juice concentrate?
Like many citrus fruits, limes are particularly high in vitamin C and antioxidants which are known to help boost your immune system, helping to fight off infections such as cold and flu. Aside from vitamin C, limes are also a great source of vitamins A, B and D, as well as minerals potassium, calcium and magnesium.
It is a common misconception that concentrate juice is less healthy than NFC juice, but the truth is that they both manage to retain similar nutritional values.
