This high Food Grade Quality Non-GMO Citric Acid comes from the fermentation of crude fruit sugars. With Urban Cheesecraft it is chiefly used in the making of cheese such as the ricotta and mozzarella in the photos.


You will receive 8oz. packaged in a recycled paper coffee bag. This amount acidifies a lot of milk since you usually need 1-2 teaspoons per cheese recipe.

Citric Acid is also generally used in retaining a product's texture and appearance so it's called for in some preserve recipes.

It is also apparently a nice base ingredient in bath fizzies and scrubbing salts but I am not an expert on that.

funny note- this stuff is what covers those crazy sour gummy worms and other candies so try
dipping some dry fruit in it and pucker up!


Watch the film Etsy made https://blog.etsy.com/en/2011/urban-cheesecraft/ about the start of my business (I bottle-feed a baby goat! :) and please peruse the feedback from happy customers.

Please Note- We do NOT include any pricing info in the packages and we CAN include brief gift notes on pack slips if you write the note in the message to seller at check out.

Update! I wrote a book called One Hour Cheese. It shows you how to make the cheeses in my shop and many more with step-by-step photos; a rarity in cheesemaking books. You can order a book here on our site or you can get the book at most major book stores in the U.S. and Canada, www.powells.com, www.indiebound.org and of course, Amazon.

FOOD SAFETY AND HANDLING: Please note that my kits and their supplies are hand-poured, hand-folded and assembled in a food-safe, fully-licensed space. The food items are all gluten-free but packaged in a room that comes in contact with wheat, soy, corn, nuts and other food allergens (with serious cleanings in between of course). The kits are also vegetarian-friendly. Just so you know.
