January 25, 2020


Lemons are extremely acidic. Any chemical with a pH less than 7 is considered acidic. Lemon juice has a pH of around 2.0, ranging between 2 and 3. To put that in perspective, the pH of battery acid (sulfuric acid) is 1.0, while the pH of an apple is about 3.0. Vinegar (a weak acetic acid) has a pH comparable to lemon juice, around 2.2. The pH of soda is about 2.5.
