    Hi all

    Just been looking at the recipes on the exante diet website and I am a little confused that some of them contain lemon juice? As citric acid is forbidden in drinks etc how come it is allowed in recipes?

    :confused:

    I don't understand this either as I have done both LL and exante (because it was cheaper) and both say no citric acid in drinks. LL also says no citrus in food but this is not consistent with exante. I can only assume that maybe the citric acid breaks down if you cook it? It has a decomposition temperature of around 150 degrees C so this would happen in the oven.

    Does anyone have any more scientific reasoning?? :)
