Citric Acid from Now® Foods may help in the sprouting‚ drying and freezing of foods. Citric acid may be a natural component found in fruits and vegetables as well as in our bodies. It seems to work as an acid regulator in the body.

This product from Now® Foods is used mainly as a preservative. Since it increases the acidity levels‚ it makes it difficult for the bacteria to survive in foods such as meat. Used widely in the food industry‚ it works as an important component in marinating meat. It is even used to add flavor to foods‚ drinks and medicines.

When citric acid is added to wine‚ it improves its taste and removes low acidity. In beer‚ it reduces the loss of sugar and turns sugar into beer. A combination of citric acid and water may facilitate the improvement of a sore throat by destroying bacteria that causes it. Use Citric Acid from Now® Foods for canning‚ sprouting‚ health and cleaning.
