Have a Zest For Life With Schoonbee Landgoed’s Pure Lemon Juice

- 8th June 2022

Lemons kick off the citrus season in South Africa from as early as February, and with the bountiful lemon orchards, grown by Schoonbee Landgoed and CHANGE Agriculture in the Loskop Valley, these showstoppers are set to produce the purest juice this year.

During the harvest season, the juiciest lemons are carefully selected by hand, cold-pressed and bottled on our farm to capture their pure essence. Nothing added, just pure lemon juice.

Whether you love a drop o of pure lemon juice in a glass of ice-cold water, a generous drizzle over a freshly prepared salad, or even a lavish splash over a succulent chicken dish, the value of pure lemon juice is endless.

Schoonbee Landgoed brings you the purest lemon juice, which is never heated, locking in the healthy properties of this versatile fruit. Most commercially available unrefrigerated lemon juices contain a myriad of preservatives, additives, colourants, and flavourings, forming a liquid of less than 30% real lemon juice.

What makes lemon juice so special?

Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C, which is critical in bone formation, boosts the immune system to combat infections and is loaded with antioxidants, protecting cells from free radicals. It further promotes brain health and protects your heart by inhibiting atherosclerosis.

Research suggests that the ascorbic acid in lemons may assist with protection against stomach cancer. Lemon juice may also constrain the formation of kidney stones and reduce the development of anaemia. Struggling with a sore throat? A little bit of lemon juice in lukewarm water and a teaspoon of honey will soothe your aching throat. The benefits of adding pure lemon juice to your daily dietary intake are simply endless.

Introducing Schoonbee Landgoed’s Pure lemon juice

At Schoonbee Landgoed, we pick our fruit at their peak during harvest time. After selecting the best lemons, we cold press the fruit on our farm to extract their pure, refreshing flavour into each bottle. Unlike most other lemon juice suppliers, our lemon juice contains no added water, sugar, colourants, flavourings or preservatives.

Due to the inherent qualities of lemon juice, this liquid can remain fresh for extended periods of time. To ensure that the juices are completely food safe, Schoonbee Landgoed uses high-pressure processing (HPP) technology that is applied within 24 hours of pressing the juice. HPP is a heatless preservation method that helps us to capture all the fresh goodness of natural lemons in our juiced product range. HPP also drastically extends the shelf life of refrigerated fresh juices. The process does not damage active enzymes and nutritional contents, giving you the best of both worlds: fresh lemon juice with extended shelf life.
