Expert Review - True Lemon and True Orange Flavoring Packets for Water

Many walkers prefer a flavored drink rather than plain water, but want to skip any extra calories, artificial colors, sweeteners or preservatives. You are more likely to drink the water you need to stay hydrated if you like the flavor.

Lemon and lime are two of the most popular water flavorings, but unless you are at home with a knife and cutting board, fresh fruit isn't convenient. 

True Citrus has convenient packets to add all-natural lemon or orange flavoring to your water. As a bonus, each serving has 25 percent of your recommended daily allowance for Vitamin C.

The packets are thin and narrow so you can easily add the contents to any glass or water bottle. Just tear off the end and put it into the mouth of the bottle. You get no mess even with the most narrow-mouthed bottles. Then put on the cap, shake it up a little and the powder dissolves quickly. If you are using it in a glass of water, you will want to mix it with a stirring stick or spoon.

The flavor is exactly like what it says it is -- all natural lemon or orange, just like you squeezed it in, but without the mess. It isn't sweet, it just adds a citrus flavor to your water.

Besides no mess, the other things that True Lemon and True Orange don't have are artificial colors, sweeteners, preservatives, gluten or sodium.

Because it has no sodium, this is not a sports drink mix. If you are doing a long workout of over an hour and sweating, you need to replenish salt. But if you want some sodium replacement, you can add your own pinch of salt and you are good to go.

I enjoy using True Lemon and True Lime not only as water flavorings, but in recipes when I need to add citrus and I don't have fresh fruit. They also sell shaker bottles of the crystals and packets designed for cooking.
