Lemon Juice Concentrate Nutritional Facts

Concentrated lemon juice is made by removing water from lemon juice. It is still sold in liquid form but is typically more sour than regular or freshly squeezed lemon juice, so you don't need to use very much to get a tart lemon taste. Pure lemon juice is used for cooking, baking and making salad dressings and marinades.
