Natural Preservative!

If you’re into sprouting then you’re already familiar with Citric Acid‚ a natural preservative typically found in citrus fruits such as lemons and limes. Citric Acid helps to inhibit the formation of mold and other bacterial growth‚ an all-too-common occurrence when sprouting in a jar due to high temperatures and humidity. Citric Acid is also useful for canning vegetables and fruit preserves.

Product Highlights:
- Sprouting Aid Makes a Great Substitute for salt.
