Citric Acid Powder from Food To Live is an extremely versatile product that can find dozens of uses in your home. It’s a natural tart flavoring for foods, a preservative, and an organic cleanser, safe for you and even babies.

Citric acid naturally comes from a variety of fruits and berries. It’s a chemical that takes part in the metabolism of every living thing.

Is Citric Acid Good for You

Although not a nutrient or antioxidant in itself, organic citric acid is right for you because it enhances the effects of antioxidants. It’s also an invaluable natural aid for combatting acid reflux.

Citric acid can only be dangerous when consumed in massive amounts, which is very unlikely unless it happens by accident. In this case, it might cause stomachache, cramps, and a variety of more severe symptoms, so you should consult a healthcare professional right away.

Citric Acid Powder: Uses

Food To Live Citric Acid Powder is beneficial for cooking, cleaning, and even making natural beauty remedies.

  • Use this powder to flavor foods and drinks.
    It’ll go exceptionally well in soups and some desserts. You can use citric acid liquid (make it yourself by dissolving the substance in water) as a substitute for vinegar.
  • Use citric acid as a preservative.
    FDA approves the use of this powder in foods, cosmetics, and even medicines as it’s a very useful natural preservative. At home, you can add it to canned goods or meats, like jerky, to extend their shelf life. Add a mild solution of this powder to your homemade creams for the same purpose.
  • Use citric acid crystals for beauty.
    This substance will help you make great whitening solutions as well as natural chemical peels. Adding some of this powder to shampoos and homemade soaps will improve leather formation and increase their cleaning efficiency.
  • Use this powder for cleaning.
    You can replace almost every type of chemical (and potentially toxic) cleanser by a homemade solution with this powder and sometimes baking soda. Use this product for cleaning and polishing any surface. It’s also great at dissolving stains, especially from grease. As it’s a mild antibacterial agent, you can spray it in the bath or other humid places to reduce the risk of mold.

Please bear in mind that pure citric acid must be ‘watered down’ to be safe for applying it to the skin or some types of surfaces. Usually, cleansers require only about two tablespoons of this granular powder per 2 liters of water. You can make it two spoonfuls per 1 liter when dealing with large amounts of dirt and grease.

    This is a wonderful food discovery that chefs have resorted to when lemons cannot provide enough of that tart citrus taste. I use it in small amounts in soups, marinades, rice in lieu of lemons or limes. The results are wonderful and even better I think it may not substitute for lemon zest flavors as well but that’s my next experiment. All in all, this adds a gourmet touch to my own cooking.

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...
