Citric Acid, Sour Salt

Citric Acid, also known as Sour Salt, is made up of fine crystals that give foods a puckery tartness, similar to lemons. It’s commonly used to replace salt; although it does not taste salty, it has a similar stimulating effect on the tongue.


The most common use for this spice is in canning, where the added acidity helps preserve food and prevent discoloration. Citric acid sour salt is also a key ingredient in homemade lemonade mixes and some beauty products.
