Can We Eat Curd and Lemon Together? (Expert Answer)

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat curd and lemon together or one after another. Because they are both healthy foods that have many benefits for your body and mind.

Curd and lemon are both healthy foods that have many benefits for your body and mind.

Curd contains calcium, protein, probiotics, and vitamin A12, which can improve your bone strength, digestion, immunity, and skin health.

Lemon contains vitamin C, antioxidants, and citric acid, which can boost your immune system, fight inflammation, and detoxify your body.

According to Ayurveda, curd is sour in taste, hot in nature, is heavy to digest (takes a longer period to undergo digestion), increases fat (good for weight gain), improves strength, increases kapha and pitta (reduced Vata) and improves agni (digestive power).

Therefore, Ayurveda recommends avoiding curd at night and not consuming it on a daily basis.

However, you can enjoy curd occasionally as a healthy snack or as part of a balanced diet.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first. If after eating curd and lemon together can cause acid reflux, allergic reactions, or digestive issues, then stop combining them.

And if you can tolerate them well, then continue.

However, you should be mindful of the quality and quantity of curd and lemon you consume.

Because too much of anything can be harmful.

You should also choose fresh and organic curd and lemon to avoid any additives or preservatives.

You can store curd and lemon in the refrigerator for up to three days or in the freezer for up to six months.

Do not store them at room temperature or in direct sunlight as this can affect their freshness and flavor.

Finally, remember, curd and lemon are both delicious and nutritious foods that can enhance your health and well-being.

But like anything else, moderation is the key.

You can enjoy them as part of a balanced diet or as a treat once in a while.
