GFIW: True Lemon/Lime, Aug. 1, 2011

This is my favorite thing to add to my water, after real fruit. I first discovered these from the dietician at the University of Chicago Celiac Center. True Lemon makes these packets one can add to water to make water more interesting, and not so boring. The best part is that they contain nothing artificial, or sweeteners...unlike so many other ones I see on grocery store shelves. This is just dried citrus fruit, and that's it! These packets come in lemon, lime, orange and now grapefruit and they are all gluten-free..whoo hoo!!

I always add these to my water, even my water I bring to the gym, when I get myself there. Lime is my favorite.

Please note...these can be tough to find at the grocery store. I usually find them in the baking aisle or near Jell-o. I have also seen them with the tea and coffee. Maybe because these can be used in recipes and flavorings. But if you go in the aisle with beverages and you see the countless other packets that artificially flavored and sweetened and you do not see these, do not despair, check the baking aisle, tea/coffee, or ask someone who works at the store.


  1. Yes! I recently discovered these, and I love them! I've only managed to find Orange and True Lemon Raspberry Lemonade in Charlotte but I'm going to keep looking for the others! Thanks for sharing =)

  2. it is University of Chicago Celiac Center NOT University of Illinois.

  3. Oops, thanks for catching that! I guess being a graduate of U of I, I had Illinois on the brain. Obviously, I know they are very different school =)

    It has been corrected. Thanks!
