    LIME DESCRIPTION

    LIME CITRUS FRUIT

    A lime is a citrus fruit, which is typically round, lime gree, 1.2 to 2.4-inches in diameter, and containing acid juice vesicles. There are several species of citrus trees whose fruits are called limes, including the Key Lime (Citrus aurantifolia), Persian Lime (Citrus x latifolia), Kaffir Lime (Citrus hystrix), and Desert Lime (Citrus glauca).

    Key Lime Pie


  • Key Lime is a citris hybrid (C. micrantha x C. medica) with a globose fruit, 1 to 2-inches in diameter, that is yellow when ripe but usually picked green commercially. It is smaller and seedier, with a higher acidity, a stronger aroma, and a thinner rind, that that of the Persian Lime. It is valued for its unique flavor compared to other LImes, with the Key Lime usually having a more sweet and bitter flavor. The name comes from its association with the Florida Keys, where it is best known as the flavoring ingredient in Key Lime pie. It is also known as West Indian Lime, Bartender's Lime, Omani Lime, or Mexican LIme, the last classified as a distinct race with a thicker skin and darker green color. Philippine varieties have various names, including dyap and bilolo.

  • Persian Lime vs Key Lime Fruit


  • The Persian lime is a seedless variety from a nearly thornless tree. It is of hybrid origin, most likely from a cross between Key Lime and either Lemon (Citrus x limon) or Citron (Citrus medica). Although there are citrus species that are referred to as limes, C x latifolia is the most commonly cultivated Lime species for commerical use, and accounts for the largest share of fruits sold as limes.

  • Kaffir Lime Fruit


  • The Kaffir Lime is a fruit native to tropical Asia including India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. It is used in Southeast Asian cuisine and the oil from it is used in perfumery.
    Desert Lime Fruit


  • The Desert Lime is a thorny shrub or small tree native to Queensland, New South Wales, and South Australia. Citrus glauca is one of the most resilient Citrus species, and is comparatively heat, drought, and cold tolerant. The species is potentially important for Citrus-breeding programs and readily hybridizes with many common Citrus species. It is a highly prized bushfood and the fruit is used in a range of products including marmalades, beverages, and succade. It has a strong lime-like flavor and is beginning to become domesticated. Commercial cultivation is reducing the reliance on wild-harvested product.


  • A VALUABLE SOURCE OF VITAMIN C

    Limes are an excellent source of Vitamin C and are often used to accent the flavors of foods and beverages. They are grown year-round in tropical climats and are usually smaller and less sour than lemons, although varieties may differ in sugar and acidic content.

    Limes originate from the Middle East, and were first grown on a large scale in Persia (now Iran) and southern Iraq. A member of the Rutaceae family and native to India, the Lime tree was first introduced to Europe by the Moors. Then, in the sixteenth century, it was brought to North America by Spanish explorers. The tree's green fruit was kept on board ships (called lime juicers) to help prevent scurvy among the ships' crews. Scurvy is a disease brought on by vitamin C deficiency. Originally from Asia, it is now cultivated in most warm countries, especially Italy, the West Indies and the Americas. It is an evergreen tree growing up to 4.5 meters (15 feet) high with smooth, green leaves, stiff sharp spines and small, white flowers. The fruit is green and although there are many varieties they usually measure about two inches in diameter.

It is characterized by frequent infections that show as normal cold symptoms, cracked lips and lip corners, ulcers on the tongue and in the mouth. You can also spot scurvy from spongy, swollen and bleeding gums. This has been a popular cure since the nineteenth century when the British used to have lime juice to ward off scurvy. In the past, soldiers and sailors were given lime to keep them safe from scurvy, which was a horrible and potentially fatal disease back then. Even today, limes are given and distributed among the workers working in hazardous, polluted environments like furnaces, painting shops, heat treatments, cement factories, mines, and other dangerous work environments to protect them from scurvy. Since its cause is a deficiency of Vitamin C, its remedy is none other than Vitamin C, and lime is full of this this essential vitamin.

This actually aids primary digestion (the digestive saliva floods your mouth even before you taste it). The natural acidity in lime does the rest facilitating smoother digestion by breaking the macro molecules of food. While they break down of the macro molecules of the food, the Flavonoids, the compounds found in the fragrant oils extracted from lime, stimulate the digestive system and increase secretion of digestive juices, bile and acids. This flood of flavonoids also stimulate the peristaltic motion. This is the reason behind lemon pickle with lunch and dinner being a traditional practice in India and various neighboring countries in that region.

  • LIME DOSAGE INFORMATION

    Lime is a citrus fruit. The juice, fruit, peel, and oil are used as a food and to make medicine. Oil pressed from the crushed fruit is known as "distilled lime oil." Oil pressed from the unripe peel is known as "expressed lime oil." Lime juice is used for severe diarrhea (dysentery). Some people apply lime oil directly to the skin to kill germs, treat nausea, and as a stimulant. In cosmetics, lime oil is used as a fragrance component and as a "fixative."

    The appropriate therapeutic dose of lime depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for lime. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your health care practitioner before using to treat health concerns.





    LIME SAFETY & INTERACTIONS INFORMATION

    Lime is likely safe for most adults when used in amounts found in foods. Lime peel is possibly safe when taken by mouth in medicinal amounts. Applying lime oil directly to the skin is possibly unsafe. Some people are sensitive to lime oil when it is applied directly to the skin. Lime oil can cause the skin to be very sensitive to the sunlight. Wear sunblock and protective clothing outside, especially if you are light-skinned.

    Take Care: Non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing if the oil is obtained by steam extraction, yet the oil obtained from cold expression can cause photosensitivity in strong sunshine and can irritate the skin. Like many other oils and all of the citrus oils, Lime essential oil makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight. Whenever your skin is exposed to the sun, brown pigment spots might form. Once these pigments develop, they might not fade for years. Because of this, do not use any type of skin care product that may contain Lime oil before going out in the sun (or using a tanning bed).

    Special Precautions & Warnings: Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking lime if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid using lime in amounts greater than what is normally found in food.

    Lime oil, like other citrus oils, only keeps for a limited time. Store it in a small dark bottle in a cool place. If stored correctly, it will last up to one year.

    LIME INTERACTION

    Lime have a moderate interaction with these medications and caution should be taken with these combinations.

  • Medications changed by the liver (Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) substrates) interacts with Lime. Some medications are changed and broken down by the liver. Lime juice might decrease how quickly the liver breaks down some medications. Drinking lime juice while taking some medications that are broken down by the liver can increase the effects and side effects of these medications. Before taking lime, talk to your healthcare provider if you are taking any medications that are changed by the liver. Some medications changed by the liver include lovastatin (Mevacor), ketoconazole (Nizoral), itraconazole (Sporanox), fexofenadine (Allegra), triazolam (Halcion), and many others.

  • Medications that increase sensitivity to sunlight (Photosensitizing drugs) interacts with Lime. Some medications can increase sensitivity to sunlight. Lime oil might also increase your sensitivity to sunlight. Using lime oil along with medications that increase sensitivity to sunlight could increase the chances of sunburn, and blistering or rashes on areas of skin exposed to sunlight. Be sure to wear sunblock and protective clothing when spending time in the sun. Some drugs that cause photosensitivity include amitriptyline (Elavil), Ciprofloxacin (Cipro), norfloxacin (Noroxin), lomefloxacin (Maxaquin), ofloxacin (Floxin), levofloxacin (Levaquin), sparfloxacin (Zagam), gatifloxacin (Tequin), moxifloxacin (Avelox), trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (Septra), tetracycline, methoxsalen (8-methoxypsoralen, 8-MOP, Oxsoralen), and Trioxsalen (Trisoralen).
