You might already be familiar with the extraordinary health benefits of lemons and lemon juice, but have you ever tried whole lemon powder?
Whole lemon powder is commonly used to aid digestion and help with other common ailments. The easiest way to consume it is by mixing 1/2 teaspoon with a cup of water or adding it to food. However, there are many delicious ways that you can incorporate lemon powder into your cooking for a daily dose of this powerful fruit.
What Makes Lemon Powder So Great
We grow our lemons in the interior valleys of Baja California and freeze-dry them to capture all the juice to recombine it with the ground up seeds, pulp and skin. This mixture is dried in a vacuum chamber and then pulverized into a fine powder. Lemon powder is a great choice for health-conscious consumers because of the following reasons:
- Convenient, non-messy packaging
- Secure, portable container
- Contains nutrients from the fruit, peel, juice, and seeds
- Pleasant and energizing aroma
Cooking with Whole Lemon Powder
Many people like the idea of using lemon powder, but aren’t exactly sure what to do with it in the kitchen. If you love the taste of lemonade, then try mixing lemon powder with water instead for a more natural, refreshing flavor with none of the sugars or artificial additives. Since this is a highly-concentrated powder, start with a mixture of just 1/2 teaspoon lemon powder and 8 ounces of water and add more powder to taste.
These are some ways that you can use lemon powder in your favorite recipes:
- Cupcakes (see recipe below)
- Sherbet (see recipe below)

The recipes are in that Lemon blog post. Did you see them?
Thank you for my lemon powder order which arrived on July 6. Although the jar lid was sealed both inside and outside, the powder of lot#10474 exp 4/2024 was brown instead of the pretty whitish tone with a hint of light yellow. My neighbor says I shouldn’t be using it because it has lost all its’ vitamins (she reads a lot on vitamin C). I told her that if all the vitamins are lost that at least the fiber is still there. Since on your website you have informed us that you use “Independent laboratory-testing”, are you able to post what the analysis findings are when the lemon powder is brown in contrast when it is a whitish tone with hints of yellow? I was home when it arrived therefore I know that it had not been left carelessly by our carrier. My apologies if I might be notifying you too late as today is 7/22/2020, if perhaps you would have wanted to catch any of the jars that were going out with the brown powder instead of the whitish tone with hints of yellow. I did read the reviews for this product on your website and few other websites. I found this “Verified Purchase: I received the items in great time but the product was terrible. It was a rust color not white as it showed on the picture. The product was very bitter and looked very old.” , “Verified Purchase: Lost flavor quickly, clumped and color oxidized to an orange color. Threw out!” So perhaps every now and then some of the batches get shipped brownish, rustish as others have noticed it as well however there isn’t anything on the label to inform the consumer the difference on the nutritional health benefits depending if one gets the jars with the brownish rustish color powders or the whitish tone with the hint of yellow powder. Putting the color differences aside, I find that it is good that you have chosen to produce a lemon powder product without sugar. Thank you.
The color of our Lemon Powder has a natural range. It can be yellow to brown. But it is never white. Even the lemons that come from one tree will produce a different color than a neighboring tree. Lemons also will vary from year to year. Remember that this is a product taken from live fruit trees, not something that is reproduced in a lab or made like Kool-Aid or lemonade to be identical from packet to packet. Also, we are producing this product from whole lemons which include the skin, zest, seeds, pulp and juice. So it is impossible to produce a white product. That is why it is completely different from lemonade which is some juice with a lot of sugar.This batch is fresh, just produced 3 months ago.
