Ingredient: 100% Lemon Myrtle, Dried Leaves Fine Milled Size: 50 gm (packed in resealable pouch) Product of Australia Lemon Myrtle is a powerful antioxidant with high minerals content like calcium, zinc and magnesium. It is the world’s richest known natural source of citral (90 - 98%) – the oil that gives “lemon” its characteristic flavour and its antimicrobial properties. An intense citrus and fresh lemon flavour with crisp and cooling menthol notes. Use sparingly towards the end of cooking on sweet & savoury dishes. Also for confectionary, baking and desserts. Put lemon myrtle only in recipes that cook for a short time, never subjecting it to extreme temperatures for more than 10 to 15 minutes. The reason for this caution is that when too much lemon myrtle is used, or when it is cooked for too long, the flavor-giving volatile oils will be destroyed and a sharp, possibly unpleasant eucalyptus flavor will dominate.
