True Lemon® and True Lime™ just makes sense. Why did it take so long for someone to make it?
People often ask us that question and the answer is, we just don’t know. But lucky for us, not so long ago, David (the founder and president of Grand Brands) was at lunch with his father. Both David and his father are lemon-lovers and while waiting for another bowl of fresh cut lemon wedges to arrive at their table, David looked at a packet of sugar sitting on the table and said, “Why hasn’t someone put the taste of fresh lemon in a packet?” David spent the next three years perfecting True Lemon® until he got the taste just right. True Lime™ packets and True Lemon® and True Lime™ shakers soon followed. And now you get the benefits of his labor of love, just by opening a True Lemon® and True Lime™ packet or shaking a bottle!
When I put a packet of True Lemon® or True Lime™ into my soda, it starts to fizz. Why is this happening?
The bubbles form as a result of a reaction that takes place when the addition of citric acid in solid form is solubilized in a carbonated soft drink (cola is the worst). The reaction occurs where gases are released (carbonation).
With that being said, it is not a significant issue if you pour a cola into a glass because the escaping gas does not get bottlenecked forming reverse pressure, which is what causes the spillover effect. If you prefer to keep your cola in the can, just add True Lemon® or True Lime™ a little bit at a time, so it won't fizz a lot and spill over.
I have Celiacs disease. Does True Lemon® and True Lime™ contain gluten?
True Lemon® and True Lime™ do not contain any gluten. Maltodextrin is an all-natural tasteless, colorless carbohydrate derived from corn, and is used for bulking and flowability. This is an insufficient amount of carbohydrate and adds no caloric value.
