Our high-quality, fresh grapefruit peel is excellent for use in Craft Beers, hot teas, baking recipes, as well as with marinades, vegetables, chicken, dressings, seafood and rice.
NCI citrus peels are used by well-known craft beer, tea, and food companies across the United States and Canada, and are prized for their fresh citrus fragrance and flavor.
Our high-quality peel comes from grapefruits picked at the peak of ripeness from orchards in Florida.
After the fruits are squeezed for their juices, the remaining portion of the peel is transported immediately to our manufacturer's facility, where it is minced and dried.
Because our peel is picked at the peak of ripeness, and transferred to our manufacturer directly after juicing our peel contains a highly fragrant and potent citrus flavor.
