Lemonade with Ionized Water [Acidic or Alkaline?] Also, What’s the ORP?

Posted by Alkaline Water Plus on

At the request of a customer I made and tested some lemonade today with ionized water from my Athena water ionizer.

Lemons are known to be one of those fruits that are acidic, when tested before consumption, but have an alkalizing effect on the body. The reason for this is that the ash of lemons [the residue after burning (digestion)] is alkaline. 

What my customer wanted to specifically know was, “What happened to the ORP after adding lemon juice to the ionized water?” So, that’s the subject of this video:

What I discovered, and you can see this in the video, is that the pH dropped from 10.8 to 2.7 in a matter of seconds as it changed from ionized water to ionized lemonade water… after adding the fresh-squeezed juice of 1/4 lemon. However, the ORP only dropped from -736 to -392. This is significant, because -392 ORP is still so high [or I should say “low”] that it’s considered medical quality.

I followed-up by adding in some Stevia and then testing the sweetened ionized water lemonade. The Stevia didn’t change the pH or the ORP. It did make for a great, healthy, naturally-sweet lemonade though. Yum! I recommend it highly.
