Among all fruits and vegetables, lemon is one of the richest sources of vitamin C. Vitamin C is one of the antioxidants that can protect your body from damage to free radicals.
Free radicals can be harmful to diseases such as cancer, heart disease and osteoarthritis. Dried lemons contain an antioxidant organic compound known as polyphenols. Some polyphenols in dried lemons (eriocytetrin, hesperidin, naringin, etc.) have anti-obesity properties, which means they prevent weight gain and suppress fat accumulation in the body.
These can be used as a decorative, in foods, where they soften through heat, or to garnish your cocktails!
