If you're into sprouting then you're already familiar with Citric Acid, an all-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.

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.

Suggested Use

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.

Other Ingredients

Pure citric acid.


Store in a cool, dry place after opening.

Now Foods citric acid

Posted by 5303697138590787308 on Mar 14, 2016

The citric acid didn't work for me. I couldn't get any of my seeds to sprout using this product. Without it my seeds sprouted beautifully. Not sure what the problem is.

works as catalyst to oxygen-based colon cleanser

Posted by 5342421467929814951 on Jan 04, 2014

I am using this together with Now Foods Magnesium Oxide on iHerb to create oxygen based colon cleansing product for myself. After taking this combo, I go to toilet almost every 30 mins. I feel clean afterwards inside, and it has improved my digestion.
