      • Julie – Sorry this took so long. I found this lime concentrate on Amazon.com which may meet your need. It states it is sugarless explicitly in the description of the product – “Key Lime is truly a distinct citrus fruit. More aromatic than the more common Persian Lime, the fruit’s popularity is due to its complex acidic flavor profile. Our Key Lime Concentrate captures these sublime flavor characteristics without added sugar or artifical ingredients.” In fact the company has many other fruit concentrates/purees available for sale there although they look pricey.

        BTW, I do not have a way to make my Lime Juice Concentrate recipe sugarless since sugar acts like a preservative to the whole preparation (the whole idea of preparing concentrate is to keep the juice concentrate available for multiple use). The alternative to the Sugar as a preservative is Salt which is not an option here. Some of the Lime Juices from concentrates available in the stores have preservatives added and I do not feel comfortable recommending them. Hope this makes sense.

  1. Thanks very much for the information. I need the concentrate for a medical problem and don’t want the sugar. I guess I will be relegated to taking Potassium Citrate after all which can cause nausea.

  2. Hi Hema,

    I really don’t know what is lemon concentrate. Can I use lemon instead of lemon concentrate ? I would really appreciate for this recipe.

    • I never tried using Moosambi. So I can’t comment on the same. Lemon Juice will be more concentrated and acts as a preservative to the juice and you can keep it for more than a month in the refrigerator. But don’t know about Moosambi.

  3. Thanks for explaining how the stirring is a crucial part of using lemon juice concentrate for pretty much anything. I’d like to start looking for a lemon juice concentrate wholesale supplier because I’m thinking about opening a small snack bar soon. I think that having something punchy for its drink menu will pair well with the rich fried foods that I will be serving.
