Real and artificial lemons?
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor and
dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
Edwin did a bit of research and responded back
Depends on what what you mean by "lemon juice." If
by lemon juice you mean just the raw, unsweetened lemon juice that
you use for cooking, well then I don't know where you're shopping,
'cause I buy that RealLemon brand stuff and it really is just lemon
juice (from concentrate). If you mean lemonADE, on the other hand,
then yeah they might use artificial flavors. They use artificial
flavors in a lot of foods (of course) in order to get just the right
taste and save money, but you really can't make lemonade without
some actual lemon juice (but it can be from concentrate). Seriously,
I know that people always talk about how this food is all fake and
that food is completely artificial, but the fact of the matter is
you usually can't make a food product without having some of the
actual real food in it-----
As for the dishwashing liquid, well, they'll say made WITH real
lemons - they never said made out of lemons - the "made with lemons"
thing usually means that it just has some lemon product in it, like
lemon oil or lemon concentrate.
Mario added his thoughts:
The difference between the lemon in dishwashing
detergent and in lemon juice is what each is used for. The acidic
quality of a lemon is what is required in dishwashing soap.
Therefore in this case natural lemons are used. In lemon juice, the
taste is what is important. Although many brands do use natural
lemon juice, other brands use artifical flavors to enhance the taste
of the lemon juice. Usually this is done to either sweeten the juice
or to remove some of the acidity that makes it bitter. So in
conclusion, the purpose behind the lemon is what is important.
tnick finished off with this:
hey make dishwashing liquid with real lemons because
the acid in it can take the grease and stuff of the plates easier
than the fake stuff can. drinking stuff with fake lemon juice is
probably better for your stomach and intestines than the real stuff
