Citric Acid Powder is a natural fruit acid that can be used in candy making, preserving foods, sprouting grains, and more.




Citric Acid Powder by OliveNation is a powdered form of a natural acid found in fruit. This food grade preservative is commonly used in candy making, especially hard candy and creams. Some recipes also call for the ingredient, including guacamole, sweet and sour soup, humus, and more.

Here are some ways to use Citric Acid Powder:

  • Use it as a preservative while canning or drying fruits and vegetables.
  • Sprinkle Citric Acid Powder on cut fruits and veggies to prevent browning.
  • Use it when sprouting grains to inhibit bacteria growth.

How to Use Citric Acid Powder in Candy Making:
Per 2 cups of sugar, use 1/8 teaspoon of powder. For hard candy, be sure to add it once the hot syrup cools below 265 degrees F.
