Lemon powder is often crafted into a supplement that’s made from a whole lemon, and while most folks use only the juice – and very infrequently, given its acidic overtones – there have been, in more recent times, some individuals finding other low-cost, convenient ways to enjoy the benefits of whole lemons on a daily basis. Because of its citric acid content and low pH of 2 to 3, lemon can be used in many diverse applications; it has been used for its antiseptic characteristics, for digestion and for helping clear common ailments such as clogged sinuses.
