Citric acid is found naturally in several fruits and berries, and is commonly added to many foods and beverages as a preservative or for flavor. It has a tart taste, and is also known as lemon salt or sour salt. When a recipe calls for "sour salt" it is referring to citric acid. It's a white granulated powder that is extracted from the juice of citrus and other acidic fruits (gooseberries, lemons, limes and pineapples). It can also be created by fermenting glucose with special citric acid producing bacteria.

Citric acid is completely natural. It gets its name from the citrus fruit family, which includes lemons, limes, oranges, tangerines, and grapefruits. Citrus fruits owe their sharp and bitter taste to citric acid, especially the more sour ones like lemons and limes. Studies have shown that citric acid can help your bones absorb calcium more easily. Our customers have used our citric acid as an ingredient in pretty much everything: cheeses, ice cream, alcoholic beverages, breads, and more. Because of its characteristic tart flavor, citric acid is often added to soft drinks and sour candies (the white, powdery coating on sour candies is likely citric acid). The strong, tart taste of citric acid is used as a flavoring agent to foods, beverages and even a couple of our salt-free blends.

Careful not to use too much as it can overpower a dish. If you're making traditional borscht, this is the key ingredient to impart that tart flavor. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 1 year. We do not recommend refrigeration or freezing.

- Try in salad dressings for that tart zing.

- Use in humus in place of lemon juice.

- To keep the interior of a dishwasher sparkling clean, fill soap dispenser with powder and run the empty dishwasher.

Shelf Life: 34-36 Months

    Bought this for a misguided attempt at making my own laundry detergent. Not sure what else to do with all this citric acid, but no complaints about the quality or quantity.

    Judging from the picture, I thought I was getting a plastic tub of citric acid. It came in a plastic baggie. Not a big deal, but I really was looking forward to the tub.I still have the bag full of citric acid. I went through a stage where I thought I would can my own jam. That stage ended after I bought self-sealing mason jars and this bag of citric acid.

    Great to make mock ricotta cheese. Quality was what I expected it even worked better than other similar products I've used in the past.

    I have been using citric acid for years to keep the inside of my dishwasher sparkling clean. Just fill the soap dispenser with the powder and run the empty dishwasher.

    I ordered this because I could not find it this year in my local store. I got more than twice the amount for just a little more money. I use it to make cheese and I will buy again from this company

    Its pure citric acid, looks like acid, taste like acid.. not much to say..

    It's as pure and as nicely packaged as you can get. Just the right size container for most cabinets and it stacks well, which is important in overloaded spice cabinets like mine. I'd say the stuff has a virtually unlimited shelf life so long as you keep it dry and dark. No real acid smell, so it's stable. But add it to liquid and it rocks.

    Used it to clean my water kettle. This stuff got all the hardware stains out.

    I felt this review was due, as others have said they did not receive it as pictured. This is exactly how my order was received. It was possible that older orders were shipped in plastic bags, but mine was in an airtight container as shown in the listing. That being said, the product is great. I am using it for making humus, and this is better than using lemon juice. It adds that tang that you find in Sabra brand humus.

    The Citric Powder is GREAT to stimulate dry mouth.I have a Salivary Gland that can be blocked up with sour drops etc.I sprinkle a little of this in mouth every morning to stimulate my salivary gland.If you have dry mouth from medications etc., this may help.I also sprinkle a little of this powder to my cup of coffee to break up the bitterness.
