The lemon, Citrus limon Osbeck, is a species of small evergreen tree in the flowering plant family Rutaceae, native to Asia. The tree's ellipsoidal yellow fruit is used for culinary and non-culinary purposes throughout the world, primarily for its juice, which has both culinary and cleaning uses. The pulp and rind are also used in cooking and baking. The juice of the lemon is about 5% to 6% citric acid, with a pH of around 2.2, giving it a sour taste. The distinctive sour taste of lemon juice makes it a key ingredient in drinks and foods such as lemonade and lemon meringue pie.
Lemon extract is a simple replacement for lemon juice or zest. Extract stays fresh longer than fruit, so it is easy and economical to keep on hand. Lemon extract is often used when cooking fish or chicken, preparing jams and baking cookies, cakes and pies.
What is Lemon Extract?
Lemon extract comes in handy to add a little zip to a bundt cake, but it hardly seems like an ingredient that would have health benefits. Yet some alternative practitioners claim near miraculous healing powers for the lowly lemon. Whether or not the claims will hold up to rigorous testing is another matter, although a few laboratory clinical trials have shown some benefit in treating certain medical conditions.
Lemon extract is a concentrated form of oil made from the lemon peel and alcohol. Oils often contain the active ingredients in herbs and plants. The active ingredients that might have health benefits in lemon extract include limonene and citral, found in the outer layer of the peel, sometimes called the zest.
Where will Lemon Extract be used for?
Lemon has acquired a reputation in alternative medicine as a cancer killing agent, as evidenced by frequently circulated emails describing the powers of lemon. The Snopes website calls the claim that lemons kill cancer a mixture of true and false information. Some studies using compounds in lemon to kill cancer cells have shown promise against cells in laboratory -- not human -- studies. A Saudi Arabian study published in the 2011 "Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention" reported that lemon extract increased apoptosis, programmed cell death, in breast cancer cells in the laboratory.
Essential oil compounds obtained from lemon extract, such as limonene, γ-terpinene and citral, might help reduce physical and psychological stress. Japanese researchers found that limonenes in particular inhibited serum corticosterone levels and cerebral monoamine levels, both indicators of stress in the brain. They reported their findings in the February 2008 issue of "Stress and Health."
