Like to make your own candies? Our citric acid is 100% food grade and the same stuff we use in all of our candy making. It comes in a fine crystalline form that is easy to mix in your recipe, liquify, or process to make a fine powder. Yes, we package it down from the 50 lbs. bags we purchase from our supplier into food safe bags but why pay for the extra packaging? Compare our prices to your local kitchen supply store or Amazon. We think you'll agree this is a great deal!
