Lemon Zest

The peel of the lemon has been used for centuries to flavor foods. Our Lemon Zest is finely minced using only the outer peel of the lemon - no bitter pith - mixed with 50% sugar. This 'knuckle saver' ingredient base is every baker's friend! Lemon Zest adds texture and mouth-feel to your desserts, sauces, glazes, and soups, along with natural lemon flavor from the oil found in the rind. It offers a more delicious and intense lemon flavor than lemon juice.
