Whole lemons and limes including the rind can be added to mixed recipes. If producing straight citrus juice without other ingredients, the fruit should be peeled prior to grinding.
Doesn’t the spinning blade in the grinder create heat and oxidize the juice?
The blade is very sharp and only contacts the fruit for a fraction of a second and therefore does not create any measurable heat or oxidation. If you put cold produce in, you get cold juice out. This is a true cold-press.
