Our lemon essence is made only from high quality Italian lemons and contains no bulking agents, and so is much stronger than even the best supermarket versions.
Did you know that it takes 400kg of orange peels to make just 2 litres of this essential oil? The peels are are cold pressed and the resultant liquid is then centrifuged (spun) to separate the essential oils and juice. There is about 2 litres of essential oil and 280 litres of concentrate which goes off to be used in other foods such as soft drinks.
Bakery expert Dan Lepard describes it as...
"An intense lemon flavour and aroma, stronger and more sweetly flavoured than simple lemon oil, accompanied by a very slight lemon blossom fragrance. When used in combination with freshly grated lemon zest and juice, the result has a much more powerful lemon flavour."
