Abstract—In this work, clarified date juices were produced from three date fruit cultivars. Basic physical properties and chemical composition of dates were experimentally determined. Dates juices were flavored with natural lemon juice, which was added at 0%, 5%, and 10% by weight. All of the produced dates juices were characterized for their chemical composition. The addition of natural lemon juice, particularly at 10% (w/w), significantly affected the composition of dates juices. The analysis of variance of dates juices revealed that the addition of lemon juice had significant impacts (P<0.05) and that the effects of the type of dates and the interaction between the type of dates and the addition of lemon juice were insignificant.
