Why You Should Freeze Lemons After Purchase: A Surprising Kitchen Hack

 


Benefits of Eating Frozen Lemons


Eating lemons can be challenging due to their sourness, but they offer numerous health benefits. Many believe the heart of the lemon lies in its juice, but the outer part – the zest – is where the highest concentration of health benefits are found. The lemon peel contains significantly more nutrients than the juice, including antioxidants and limonoids.


When frozen, lemons' taste alters, making them easier to consume. The acidity reduces slightly, only to be restored upon thawing. Cleaning and washing the lemons before freezing is recommended.


In many families, this practice is common, and the frozen zest tastes much better than the thawed.
