Your Expert Guide To Citric Acid
Citric Acid is a popular ingredient on product labels and is commonly used to flavor, preserve, and add acid to food. It is naturally found in citrus fruits and vegetables, giving them their sour taste. Because of the greater concentrations of citric acid in certain fruits, lemons and limes are more sour than oranges and grapefruits. Additionally, using Citric Acid as a preservative and emulsifying agent can be traced back to a century ago.
Why Do We Use It?
Citric Acid Powder is a natural food preservative and has been used in everything from candies to canning to help food last while preserving both appearance and flavor. Whether you're dusting it on your freshly cut apples to keep them from browning, or adding it to your canning process to preserve the flavor and prevent bacterial growth, PuriSure’s pure food grade quality citric acid is the perfect economical solution to your needs.
Cleaning products have long used citric acid to help boost their ability to eliminate even the toughest stains and help conquer odor. In places where water residue can build up, like bathrooms and kitchens, citric acid powder is used to remove the mineral rings, leaving fixtures, faucets, and appliances bright and clean. Add in a little baking soda and you have a powerful cleanser useful in every area of your home.
Our citric acid powder also works wonders with home beauty treatments in a surprising amount of ways. When used with shampoo, it can help prevent dandruff and aids in scalp exfoliation. Citric acid powder also helps to open the pores in your skin, making it a great addition to your face wash routine for acne-prone skin. If you love bath bombs, citric acid powder is what makes them fix, dissolve, and disperse throughout your bath water.
