Why You Need Citric Acid

Citric Acid is one of those very special ingredients that we carry that many pass by and don’t even realize how it is so magical!



It’s a “good” preservative!

Derived from citrus fruits, this natural chemical when sprinkled on can keep fruits fresher and from browning. Most commonly it’s perfect for keeping apple slices from turning. Just sprinkle 1/4 tsp & 1 tsp of water on a sliced small apple and mix it up well. They maintain their white crisp appearance which is perfect for the kids lunches, keeping ready sliced snacks in the fridge or for that fruit platter your making for the summer BBQs! It’s also PERFECT for your avocados and guacamole, in keeping it from turning brown. I used 1/2 tsp sprinkled on to 1 avocado and then mushed it up- 45 minutes later it still looked deliciously green like it should!

It’s an  important flavor balancer!

Just like our tongues like sweet, salty, bitter & umami flavors it ‘likes’ acid too. And citric acid is often the little secret ingredient you need! A dash works wonders in your tomato soup, in your rich reduction sauces and gravies. It’s a perfect way to add that essential acid flavor without adding liquid to your recipe.

Add that special ‘tang’ without adding liquid!

Citric Acid is the PERFECT secret ingredient to your BBQ rubs. It is one of the key ingredients that makes the magic happen in many of your favorite shop bought seasonings and rubs. I

It’s a handy household helper!
