Lemon Juice, Reconstituted

Reconstituted lemon juice is, as the name implies, made by adding water back into concentrated lemon juice.  Because it’s a processed food project, it also requires the flavor to be adjusted in order to main a uniform flavor.  This is accomplished by adding lemon oil that has been extracted from the peel.  And because it is a processed project, all bottled brands that we have encountered, have also added preservatives to maintain color and freshness, which usually include sodium bisulfate and sodium benzoate.  We recommend buy brands that have the least number and quantities of additives.  We mostly use bottled lemon juice in recipes that require a large quantity of lemon juice (a cup or more), for convenience, or when fresh lemons are not available.  Reconstituted lemon juice is not a substitute for the flavor of fresh lemons.  See the nutritional chart below.
