LEMON – Italy
A major export of Sicily, this premier fruit, is Italy’s proudest, most prolific agricultural endeavors. From an exponential flavor boost in nearly every course at the dining table to flavoring pharmaceuticals and perfuming cleansing products and hospital-grade disinfectants, the king of citrus supports the manufacture of just about everything. In pharmaceutical use, it is known for stimulating white corpuscles and as an antimicrobial and antioxidant agent. In European countries, lemon is regarded as an all-inclusive tonic, especially in infectious illness. The juice of the lemon is valued for its therapeutic assistance with acidic disorders, as well as aiding the supportive relief of fever and bacterial issues. Cold press extraction of the peel imparts the pale, green-yellow essential oil.
