It’ s Not Lemon, It’ s Not Lime, It’ s Not Orange, It’ s Better
Yuja, also known as yuzu in Japan, is a citrus fruit that is cultivated in Asia. It’ s sometimes referred to as “citron.” It’ s about the size of a tangerine, and is yellow-orange when ripe. The mature fruit contains a large amount of seeds. The fruit is not usually consumed like an orange, with the rind peeled and the pulp eaten. Like a lemon or lime, it is highly prized for its fragrant zest, essential oil, seeds, and juice. The juice of a yuja is particularly sour, and forms the base for yujacha, a citron tea which Koreans swear by as a cold and flu remedy, and ponzu, a popular Japanese cooking sauce.
The health benefits also spill over into its cosmetic benefits. Yuja has three times more vitamin C than lemon. Vitamin C is essential to the body’ s production of collagen, a necessary component of healthy skin, hair, and nails. As a potent antioxidant, vitamin C also reduces free radical damage and boosts the body’ s immune system. Yuja’ s essential oils have a strong fragrance, which soothes and moisturizes rough skin, as well as relaxes the body and mind. SKINFOOD and yuja are a match made in heaven!
