Lemons are an oval to oblong citrus fruit, with a small point at each end. Skin or rind is more or less rough, thick and dotted with oil glands and the flesh is very juicy and sour. Their flesh is divided into segments by whitish membranes which radiate out from the centre like the spokes of a wheel. The lemons seeds lie in the centre. Like all citrus fruit, theyre an excellent source of vitamin C. 100ml of their juice has 48mg of vitamin C - enough for one day. Mixed with honey, it is often used to soothe a sore throat. Rich in pectin, a type of soluble fibre. Pectin is used for setting jams but it is also a type of dietary fibre. Some studies have shown that soluble dietary fibre can help lower blood cholesterol levels. If you eat a lemon, it’s important to rinse your mouth with water afterwards, as the high acidity level can erode tooth enamel. Don’t brush your teeth immediately after eating one as the toothbrush can etch the acid into tooth enamel.
