This product provides a pantry-ready alternative to lemon juice when canning tomatoes. Citric acid is called for in 90% of USDA tomato canning recipes.

Q: Can this be used for other things besides preserving tomatoes, such as baking?

submitted by Alexa - 4 years ago
  • A: yep. According to another web site that showed the full ingredient label, it should just be citric acid and a bit of silicon dioxide to prevent caking. Useful for lots of cooking and cleaning tasks!

Q: Why do you have zero instructions on your containers? This novice would like to know!

submitted by A Novice - 1 year ago
  • A: Hi, the instructions for the Ball Citric Acid for Preserving Tomatoes, is not listed on the package because the amount used in our recipes vary. All of the Ball recipes are tested by our food scientist and the amount of citric acid used is not a standard amount, it depends on the recipe you are using.

Q: Should I be worried about any food allergies? Is it being “packaged in a facility that also processes eggs, dairy, peanuts, soy, tree nuts, and wheat."

We have effective procedures in place to avoid cross-contamination of our products, but we cannot guarantee they were made in a facility that is free of any of those allergens. We hope this helps!

Helped dissolve hard water deposits that cloud glass when sprinkled into glass with warm water and wait about 20 minutes. Also helps if left overnight in the toilet bowl with vinegar before scrubbing.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I do a lot of canning and food preservation, and am a by the books kind of canner, making sure foods that need extra acid to be safe are put up properly. Citric acid has long since been my additive of choice, and Ball's citric acid works exactly as I expect it to. The jar is a convenient size for someone like me who puts up a couple of dozen jars of tomatoes and is easy to store, unlike the plastic bags that citric acid frequently comes in. Overall a great product and an important one in the canning process.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Truthfully anything made by the Ball company has been trusted by my family for many many years. I had never used such a product as this but found it quiet handy. It can be used for a number of other uses as well.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Did not work well for me I had a problem with it leaving clumps in the bottom. I will give it a try again as it was my first time using it and it could of been an error on my part. I have tried other products from this brand that has worked amazing.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great for canning tomatoes without using lemon juice. The best thing about this product is that there are so many other uses for it besides just canning tomatoes. I will be using this product when caving in the future.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have tried many brands and this one seems to work the best with our tomatoes. We would highly recommend when choosing a citric acid for your vegetables and tomatoes. Other brands don't seem to work quite as well as Ball.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this optimistically envisioning myself canning tomatoes from my garden, but then my garden was a bit stingy with the produce this year. No worries because my daughter decided to make bath bombs and citric acid is one of the main ingredients. Worked fantastically and now I can have a nice relaxing bath while I ponder how to improve my tomato yield for next year. :)

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this citric acid a week ago. It is a brand that I’ve used since I started canning. My tomatoes always turn out great when I use the ball brand citric acid. It was packaged as expected when received.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was finally able to make time to use this and it actually worked really well without changing any flavor. After asking around, I have many friends who swear by it. I look forward to gardening season next spring. We will be planting plenty of tomoto plants next year and this will be a must have for canning!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Are use these for canning tomatoes, which of course is obvious that I used it for that. However, I cannot wait to taste my preserved tomatoes. I have never used this type of citric acid yet. And tomatoes consistency already looks better than my original.
