Citric Acid Recipes
Maxine Said:What's the difference between citric acid and tartaric acid?
We Answered:Citric acid is a weak organic acid found in citrus fruits. It is a good, natural preservative and is also used to add an acidic (sour) taste to foods and soft drinks
Tartaric acid is a white crystalline organic acid. It occurs naturally in many plants, particularly grapes and tamarinds, and is one of the main acids found in wine. It is added to other foods to give a sour taste, and is used as an antioxidant.

Milton Said:If they're asking me in a recipe to add citric acid, can i replace it for some juicie squeezed from a lemon?
We Answered:Since it's tea it shouldn't make a difference (unless it kombucha or something where it sits for a while) but citric acid is actually a powder. So in baking it would make a bit of difference.
