Mad Millie Citric Acid is a natural preservative used in place of culture to add an acidic, zesty taste.
Citric acid is great for the production of cheese and many other artisan made foods and beverages.
Its job is to coagulate the milk (chemical reaction with the proteins in the milk causing it to separate into curds and whey).
Ideal when making Ricotta, Mozzarella, Paneer, Mascarpone and other simple fresh cheeses.
Citric acid is an organic acid that is a component of all aerobic living organisms—most abundantly, and not surprisingly, in citrus fruit. This weak acid has been used as an additive in processed foods for more than 100 years as a preservative, a sour flavouring, or an emulsifying agent. Because of its effective preservative properties, citric acid can be found in most canned and jarred foods to prevent botulism.
About Mad Millie
Mad Millie is a young Kiwi company with a passion and love for all things delicious and handcrafted. We also love to share our passion with you by giving you the opportunity to do this yourself at home.
We're famous for our cheese making kits which allow you to make an array of gourmet cheeses such as feta, cheddar, halloumi, mozzarella, Camembert and more, as well as including making butter! Homemade cheese is something we want to prove can be done in your kitchen with your own hands! Plus they make fantastic gifts too.
We don't stop there though. What better way to accompany your gourmet cheese than with homemade sausages, cider, beer, yoghurt and more. Our Fresh Sausage Kit is packed with homemade sausage making recipes, our Boutique Brewery Kits allow you to make refreshing cider or beer to help quench your thirst and we look after you too with kits such as Greek Yoghurt and Kefir that are full of healthy benefits!
The beauty of making things yourself is that you know exactly what goes in it, you can avoid nasty additives and you can make it just how you like it! Don't just take our word for it though we've had others tell us how much they enjoy our kits too.
We've made it easy, quick and provided you with anything specialised, so why don't you give it a try!
