    • How well does the citric acid in lemon juice work for making mozzarella cheese? What amount of lemon juice would be needed?
    • Lemon juice is a natural product with a range of pH and flavor. Citric acid is standardized and is therefore much more reliable. We do not recommend substituting the citric acid in the mozzarella recipe.

    • Citric acid is contained in lemon juice. I use juice of one lemon to make my own ricotta, of which I am very satisfied. Wouldn't citric acid and lemon juice be interchangeable as well in any other cheese making, or is there a substantial difference in which I would need citric acid in place of lemon juice, seeing that I would need to dissolve it anyway? Thank you in advance.
    • Lemon juice is wonderful for making soft cheese but it is not appropriate in all instances. Citric acid is more consistent and will not change the flavor of the cheese making it the preferred method for some types of cheese.
