Citric Acid

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.

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.

“We just got a box of spices from you guys this week. Opening it and smelling everything was one of the highlights of my week. I'm looking forward to getting back in the kitchen to play with some of the new stuff we ordered.”
