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, and all-to-common occurrence when sprouting in a jar due to high temperatures and humidity. Citric Acid is also useful for canning vegetables and fruit preserves.
Because you are what you eat, NOW Real Food has been committed to providing delicious, healthy, natural and organic foods since 1968. We're independent, family owned, and proud of it. Keep it natural. Keep it real.
Citric Acid is a food grade acid that is present in many natural foods. It can be used to reduce spoilage in sprouting by adding 1 tsp. per quart to soak and rinse water.
Citric Acid is also useful in canning, drying or freezing foods. It can be used to preserve Vitamin C content, retard spoilage and prevent discoloration. Use 1 tsp. per quart of water or juice for most fruits and vegetables.

I got this to use as a cleaning agent in my Zojirushi water boiler, and it worked fantastically! After only two cleaning cycles, my pot looks brand new. I also used it to clean the calcium deposits off of my mouth night guard and my wife's retainer. All I can say is, "wow!" After a single soaking, it finally looks clean. I haven't used a chemical cleaner on my night guard in roughly 3+ years (and it showed, I'm embarrassed to say), and this stuff worked like magic. Highly recommended. Also, iHerb.com provided superb service. It shipped very quickly and arrived before I expected it.
My girl scouts made fizzy bath bombs for their spa badge. This was a good price and they shipped quickly.
