Dissolves mineral deposits better than CLR. I use some with my toothpaste if I don't get around to brushing my teeth for a few days. Incredible cutting power for being basically non-toxic.
Also a picture of a bag of Citric Acid (Lemon Powder) from India, it is used as a coagulant
to produce paneer, curd separated from whey. If you kneed paneer too long smoothing it into chhena, the butterfat will ooze out.
"How To Make Paneer?
* 1 litre full-cream milk (use lean milk for a low-fat version)
* ½ tsp citric acid/lemon juice
* ½ cup warm water
* Set the milk up to boil.
* As the milk is readied, dissolve the citric acid/lemon juice in half a cup of warm water.
* When the milk comes to a boil, pour the acid-water/lemon juice-water mix into it.
* Reduce the heat and stir continuously until the milk is completely curdled.
# Remove from the heat when the separation of the curds and yellowish whey is complete.
# Strain the mixture through a clean muslin cloth.
# Hold it under running water for a minute and then press out the excess water.
# Hang the muslin for 15-20 minutes so that all the whey is drained out.
# To make the paneer into a block tie the muslin and place it under something heavy.
# The paneer can now be cut into chunks and used as required.

Pictures at an India sweet and snack shop, sandesh, chum chums, and rasgoolas made with curd, also a two foot dosa, the result of thousands of years perfecting munchie satisfying delights.
