    Why does milk curdle when lemon juice is added?

    A:

    Milk curdles when lemon juice is added to it because the acid in the lemon juice lowers the pH of the milk and causes its particles to solidify and expand. Because these particles are repelled by the acid, they rise to the top to get as far away from it as possible, separating the solid milk curds from the liquid whey.

    Does frozen lemon juice expire?

    A:

    When stored in the freezer in a tightly sealed container, lemon juice is good for at least 3 to 5 months, sometimes even longer. To tell if lemon juice is no longer good, look for changes in color, smell or taste. If it is a darker color than normal, or doesn't have a citrus smell or taste, it is likely turned bad.
