The Food Guys:
Lemonade is a Lot Healthier Than You Think
By Debra Goodwin and Al Harris
DOC: Hey Al. What’s the most refreshing beverage to consume during the
AL: Long Island Tea?
DOC: Well, Lemonade has my vote. I know you are already wondering about the
nutritional impact of the sweeteners that are generally added to lemonade. It is
true that sweeteners should be limited in one’s diet; however, there is a
phytonutrient called limonene, found in lemons and other citrus fruits, that may
somewhat offset the negative impact of sweeteners added to lemonade.
