how to soak lemonade?
the best choice is fresh lemon.
fresh lemon has a strong aroma, while the aroma components and vitamin C of dry lemon have a certain loss. Fresh lemon must be peeled and sliced. Because some of the flavonoids in the peel are higher, such as hesperidin, naringin, etc., they are all healthy ingredients. Lemon essential oil is also mainly in the peel, and cutting thin is conducive to bubble out the aroma components in the lemon peel. Flavonoids have a slight bitter taste, which is combined with the sour taste of lemon itself. It is more thirst quenching when it is hot. The rest of the lemon can be coated with honey at the incision and wrapped in plastic wrap. It can be stored in the refrigerator for three days.
the water temperature is 60 ~ 70 ℃.
the water for soaking lemon is too cold, and the fragrance is not easy to soak out. If soaked in boiling water, there will be more bitter substances dissolved, such as hesperidin. Some people worry that too high water temperature will lead to the loss of vitamin C. in fact, lemon is more acidic, and vitamin C has better heat resistance under acidic conditions, so it is not so easy to lose. Therefore, the water temperature for soaking lemon is generally 60 ~ 70 ℃.
lemon water must be light.
if you use lemonade instead of boiled water to quench your thirst, make sure it is light when soaking in water. A large piece of lemon with skin can be soaked in 1 liter of water, which can be poured into 3 ~ 4 small cups. Generally, it can be brewed 2 ~ 3 times. When there is no lemon flavor, it can be replaced with a new one. This bubble out of the lemon water is not sour, not astringent, more fragrance, no sugar or honey can be drunk, the energy content can be ignored. If you put more lemon slices, you need sugar or honey to balance the sour taste.
finally, we need to remind you that lemonade with a little honey or sugar will be better. However, the light sweet lemonade contains about 5% sugar, and a cup (200g) of honey water with sugar contains 40kcal of energy. If you drink two cups, it is equivalent to eating 1 / 4 bowl of rice, so people who need to control their weight should limit it.
in addition, people with too much acid in the stomach only need to soak lemonade as light as possible, because a small amount of citric acid is conducive to the repair of gastric mucosa. For those with indigestion, adding a thin piece of ginger in the light lemon water with a meal is good for promoting the secretion of digestive juice. The light lemon water without sugar has no sodium, almost no energy, but contains potassium, a small amount of vitamin C and a small amount of flavonoids. It is very suitable for the daily drinking of chronic patients with hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and gout.
