tdcWhy use citric acid in cooking?

Citric acid has various uses in culinary applications. It serves as a flavor enhancer, a preservative, and aids in facilitating the maturation process of certain fermented specialties.

Its pH makes it useful as a food preservative and helps maintain the color of foods by significantly slowing down oxidation. Since many bacteria cannot thrive in an acidic environment, this additive is often added to jams, jellies, candies, and other preserved foods to facilitate proper preservation.

It is also used to aid in the ripening process during cheese making, especially for mozzarella. It is employed to adjust the pH of solutions during brewing beer and wine. It is helpful in preventing fats from separating in homemade ice cream, and it also prevents sugar from crystallizing in caramels. A small pinch of citric acid can enhance the leavening power of baking soda, making it an ideal secret ingredient for cakes and cookies. Those on a low-sodium diet can use citric acid as a replacement for salt in seasoning.

tdcHow to cook with citric acid?

It can be measured and added to recipes either as an ingredient or as a replacement for other acids like lemon juice or vinegar. For example, when canning tomatoes, 1/2 teaspoon of citric acid powder can be used for every liter of tomato preparation. This additive can also be sprinkled on finished recipes such as guacamole or raw fruits like apples to maintain color.

If making cheese like ricotta, it will ensure a perfect balance of acidity without adding extra flavors. Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon of citric acid in 2 tablespoons of water and use it instead of 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or vinegar.

This product can also be used when preparing game meat to help eliminate bacteria.

Remember that citric acid is an irritant to the eyes and skin in case of prolonged exposure, so be cautious when using it.

tdcWhat does citric acid taste like?

This additive adds a bitter taste to dishes and has a slightly tart and refreshing flavor. It is perfect for balancing the sweetness of sodas, teas, fruit juices, and other beverages.
