Description of Lime Oil Mexican C.P., Types B
Produced through a more traditional form of cold-pressing than the Mexican “Type A” material, Lime Oil Mexican C.P. Type B is extracted from the peels of Citrus aurantiifolia fruits. This process produces a dark, deeply green oil with an aroma and flavor profile that near-perfectly mirrors that of fresh lime peels. Lime Oil Mexican Type B has a dry, piney, and exceptionally fresh top note, though it still retains all the classic mouth-watering “lime” notes expected of this oil. Lime Oil Mexican C.P. “B” is most commonly used in the flavor industry, as its well-rounded characteristics tend to embody the taste of fresh lime quite well.
