    It’s that time of year when these become available and as a favourite in our family as well as being a huge cold/flu buster and massive source of vit c I thought I would double check it’s ok.

    Wiki page says it has LESS sugar then a standard lemon, 1.7g compared to 2.50g [each per 100g].

    I’ve been having a few but keeping consumption low but now with this information it seems they are fine. Thoughts?

    Thank you.

    Ask able900 for a copy of the diet and you won’t have to ask…

    We do recommend it on the diet.

    I have a copy of the strict diet, it says lemons and limes but these aren’t conventional lemons so i thought i’d ask, i found the sugar content information as i was writing the thread.

    I thought being ‘sweet lemons’ they might cause a problem but it seems the bland sweetness is more to do with low acidity then sugar.

    I also wanted to let people know there out there, they might not be as sweet as an orange but they are refreshing, you quarter them and eat them like an orange, don’t leave them to stand or keep them to long as they will go bitter.

    They are very popular to get over colds and flus.

    This is a valid question, and a very good one. I don’t agree that the forums diet list would answer this question. Seems odd to tell eskimo pup to look there.

    There are probably 500 different types of lemons, so do you expect us to list each kind?
