Lemon is a versatile citrus fruit that is used for its tart and slightly sweet flavor in entrees, appetizers, desserts and beverages. Lemons and limes were commonly transported on ships and in mines during the 19th century to prevent scurvy, which is caused by a deficiency of vitamin C.
A single medium lemon contains approximately 17 calories, 5 g of carbohydrate and no fat. Despite these seemingly sparse values, lemons are effective in the treatment and prevention of a wide variety of health conditions.
