Encapsulated citric acid In Jerky?


  • Hi Everyone,

    Has anyone used ECA when making Jerky in a dehydrator? If so, did you like the results?

    Thanks,

    jramey So the Encapsulated part of that is going to be an issue, the oil is either cottonseed or palm oil and it will dissolve at 130° but without enough moisture to aid it I don’t think it will dissolve fully. I think you will end up with residue from the oil on the surface of your meat. Why are you wanting to use the Encapsulated Citric Acid with jerky? Is it for Cure acceleration or the tang?
