Calories In A Lime


Calories in a lime

Limes are small and a single medium-sized one weighing 67 grams has only 20 calories according to the US Center for Disease Control .

It has 7 grams of carbohydrates but no sugars in that serving size.

There are two grams of fiber and the Vitamin C daily value is 35%.

Choosing limes

Your lime may vary in shades of green, but always choose one with a smooth skin and no soft spots.

Since they are almost always served with the rind intact, make sure you wash them before cutting.

Serving ideas

The slices or wedges are frequently used as garnish or to flavor a smoothie, limeade, or cocktails.

Freshly squeezed lime juice is also used in drinks, sauces, seafood recipes, and with grilled meats.

The zest or grated rind is used in baking and dessert garnishes.

Scurvy prevention

For thousands of years, sailors became ill with scurvy after a long time at sea.

Even before the discovery of Vitamin C, they knew they needed fresh fruit but were unable to preserve it for the months away from fresh supplies.

The British discovered that oranges, lemons, and limes could be kept on board without perishing.

At times, Britain's sailors were given compulsory limejuice and became known as "limeys."

Other records dispute the use of limes to prevent scurvy, based on James Lind's work in 1860.

However, based on current information, 3 limes a day could provide over 100% vitamin C daily value.
