Lemon Myrtle

$8.00$15.00

Kaiyu Superfood’s Lemon Myrtle is from WA and organically grown. Lemon Myrtle leaves contain citral which contributes to it’s high antioxidant content and gives Lemon Myrtle its lemony taste and smell. Lemon Myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) has antimicrobial and antifungal properties. It is a source of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, lutein, is rich in phenolic compounds (88.1mg per gallic acid equivalent) and is a great source of calcium. Traditionally in Aboriginal culture, Lemon Myrtle has been used for both food and medicinal purposes.

Our Lemon Myrtle is grown using organic practices in WA which is free of myrtle rust. It is processed on site here at Humpty Doo, NT and packaged in biodegradable packs.

Why West Australian grown?

Myrtle rust is a fungal disease that affects plants in the family Myrtaceae such as eucalypts, callistemons, melaleucas and leptospermums to name a few. As Myrtle rust has caused serious disease in eucalypts overseas and has now spread down the east coast of Australia, scientists are worried about our native bush and ecosystems and what effect this disease will have on them. WA and SA are currently myrtle rust free. Biosecurity controls have been put in place so that no Myrtaceae plant material (including lemon myrtle) is allowed to be transported from the Eastern states to stop the spread of the disease. That’s why we stock Lemon Myrtle grown from WA so that there is no chance that we are spreading the disease.
