the other day I made tea with lemon. then I put some milk in the tea and immediately the mile looked like it was curdling. I dont know if that is the correct word but the milk did not disolve into the tea like normal, it looked much different. since the tea did not cause it, lemon was the only new factor in the equation of tea, milk, honey

this makes me wonder about food combinations. lemon and milk dont seem to mix well so I would assume apple, oranges, grapefuits, and other things may have this same reaction with milk, butter, yougurt, cheese, tec...

anyone with any insight into this or know where I can find somethign, website or a book, that may discuss this?

It is best, when consuming fruit, to eat it before rather than with or following a meal.

tubeseeker, if you scroll to the very bottom of this page on the left there is a link to one of Andy's other sites called Discuss Cooking. Any food related question you have will get answered promptly there.

As for this one about the milk and lemon I can answer that for you. You did indeed curdle the milk in your tea with the lemon. Any acidic fruit (citrus) will cause milk to curdle. Are you concerned about combining dairy products with citrus at meals? There is no reason not to have citrus and dairy together at a meal. A glass of orange juice and a glass of milk at the same meal will not do anything nasty to your insides. After all, consider that you are putting all of that into hydrochloric acid. All the citric acid does is separate the protein from the liquid in the milk. Thats going to happen when it hits your tummy anyway.

Was that sort of what you were asking? I wasn't clear on your initial question.

sparking my curiosity I looked into it on the web, at the store i get food from, and in my yoga books. This is what Yoga seems to believe about the subject. Acidic fruits will ferment/putrify fruit and make them tamasic. Nutritionists dont seemed worried about it. But I was seeking yoga opinion, because since starting yoga I have ailed some of my challenges that the doctors could not

One being a very rapid heart beat that they said was just normal.

OK, I don't mean to be displaying my ignorance here, but exactly how is the "Yoga" belief about acidic fruits and dairy different from a nutritionist's viewpoint?

Did you mean that you were looking for guidance about when and how to eat these things in your yoga practice?
