Sour salt, or otherwise known as citric acid, is very strong and used to an acidic or sour taste when cooking foods. Sour Salt must be uses sparingly to avoid an overwhelming sourness. Citric acid adds a sour tang to vegetables, pickles, and some Middle Eastern cuisines. It can be used in the place of fresh lemon juice in some recipes, as well as, to caramels to prevent sucrose crystallization. Wonderful product to have in the kitchen!

The Best Sour Salt
By: Gourmet Cook - Akron, OH Nov 15, 2011
I am not sure why, but this Sour Salt is so high quality when I use it bake with or to add a citric flavor to pies or frosting. Couldn't live without it!

Use sparingly - this stuff is pure! A must to have on hand when you need to make faux buttermilk in a hurry. Great for cocktails, and for keeping pickled vegetables colorful. Sometimes you need a hint of sour without the taste of vinegar.
A new taste treat.

I had not tried sour salt before, so I ordered it out of curiosity. I've only tasted it so far, but I like the flavor. I'm sure I will enjoy using it.
