As you know lemon is acidy and maple syrup is sweet and they do not combine nicely as each component requires different PH level for breaking down. Hence, a stalemate is reached and as a result fermentation (and alcohol with no choice) is produced ... Eventually the intelligent body will get out of this mess. But I do not want to burden it down.
Over the past 10 years, I avoided acidy/sweet food combination as I know from first hand experience the impact thereof. I used to suffer from strong acid reflux (because of this incompatbile combination and my stomch valve was abused during my standard Western diet upbringing.)
My question to you whether you ever bothered with this combination and food combination in general.
I absolutely love the sweet/sour taste, and have since childhood. I've never had the slightest digestive problem with them, and this is the first time I've heard this theory. Sorry to be of no help in this area.
