    What is lime?

    Lime, bearing the scientific name Citrus Aurantifolia, is an edible acid fruit which is typically round, 3–6 cm in diameter, and green to yellow in colour. It is widely grown in tropical and subtropical areas.  In Sri Lanka the major lime growing areas are the Dry and Intermediate zones.    

    A rich source of vitamin C, this sour citrus fruit can do what many specialist medicines cannot. Thus the health benefits of lime are endless; including weight loss, skin care, good digestion, relief from constipation, eye care, and treatment of scurvy, piles, peptic ulcer, respiratory disorders, gout, gums, urinary disorders, etc. The best part is that lime as a treatment/cure has no side effects.     

    Lime is a good digestive appetizer and is consumed throughout the world in sorbets, beverages, refreshing drinks, pickles, jams, jellies, snacks, candies, sugar boiled confectionaries and culinary and the oil extracted from its peel or skin is extensively used in soft drink concentrates, body oils, cosmetics, hair oils, tooth pastes, toilet and beauty soaps, disinfectants, mouth washes, deodorants and innumerable other products.
