is lime water a base or acid? if it is a base then how can it be be base becuse lime is acidic in nature?

Please note that lime juice is different from lime water. Lime juice is the juice obtained from lime, a citrus fruit. This contains citric acid, and is therefore sour in taste. On the other hand, lime water is a saturated solution of a base called calcium hydroxide (chemical formula Ca(OH)2) in water. Hence, lime water is not acidic but basic in nature.
