Information on juicing Lemon

Juicing a lemon is a good way of adding a kick to otherwise bland juice recipes. Lemons are a good source of the powerful antioxidant vitamin C.

When looking for lemons for juicing avoid ones with bruises, wrinkled or discoloured skin. Choose lemons that have smooth skins are that are heavy for their size.

Lemons contain 30 to 45 percent juice depending on variety, climate, maturity when harvested, and storage conditions. The extracted juice contains between 4.5 and 8.5% organic acids (mostly citric).

Lemon juice can enhance the taste of other juices that are in the juice recipe.

Third century Romans believed that the lemon was an antidote for all poisons.
