Is this encapsulated Acid?

Hello everyone. I am new to this site and I have a question. First off I am making meat sticks with seasonings from waltons. I forgot to order encapsulated acid So I had to go to a local butcher shop and ask to buy some from them. This is what they sold me.
I looked on Waltons website and Excalibur’s site and came up empty. I am doing 75 lbs of sticks and don’t want to mess them up. I want to make sure that this is the right stuff to use. Thanks in advance for your help.
@Darren8167 Smooth Acid does have encapsulated citric acid in it, as well as some lactic acid and other ingredients. However, while it will work for your purposes, it will not have as much tang as regular Encapsulated Citric Acid. As the name implies Smooth Acid is designed to impart a smoother taste.
Does anyone have a recipe for albs of Jalapeño snack sicks. How much sure cure, How much sure gel, how much encapsulated citric acid, and how muck water.
@austin Thanks for the help!
I purchased some Clear Collagen casings to make pepperoni. Today when I tied them off all was well, but when I went to hang them up they simply did not hold the weight of the pepperoni sticks and tore apart.
The sticks weighed from 12-13.5 oz each. I had to break out my hog casings, tear all the meat out of the collagen casings and stuff them into the hog casings.
So what is the secret to clear collagen casings…is it possible Waltons mis labeled the casings and I really got Fresh Collagen casings?
@steve-brown45 I am not familiar with your jerky gun but I have the LEM Jerky Cannon and the tubes from my Walton’s stuffer fit the Jerky Cannon.
Right on Austin. We pickle our own jalepenos and use them in our summer sausage but we thoroughly rinse them and that seems to help with binding. We do like the “pickled” flavor the jalapenos add to the sausage.
I am currently using a small scale jerky gun from RedHead to shoot jerky, until I can afford the equipment here. Will the sausage stuffing tubes and meat stick tube fit the RedHead or Jerky Cannon gun?
