Why do some Ormeal™ purees have lemony flavour?

To make the products as safe as possible for the little ones. For certain recipes, we add ‘Organic Lemon Juice Concentrate (Natural Lime Juice)’ which naturally acts as an acidic preserver additionally maintains the freshness and nutrition of the fruit(s). As Ormeal™ uses natural fruits only, thus sometimes naturally occurring acid level is not enough to sustain from microbial development. Lime juice concentrate works here to keep product safe from any bacterial development, hence keeps the content fresh for a longer period of time.
