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, an all-too-common occurrence when sprouting in a jar due to high temperatures and humidity. NOW Real Food Citric Acid is also useful for canning vegetables and fruit preserves. It's 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.
