Encapsulate Citric Acid for Sausage Making

Encapsulated Citric Acid

Add 3 oz. Citric Acid per 25 lbs. of Snack Stick Meat Mixture AFTER your final ground.
 Adds that "tangy" flavor to your Snack Sticks.  (Do not run Citric through your grinder!)  This is a must if you like the flavor of Slim Jims® for your Snack Sticks!
UPC:  721762841938

 

 

 

 

This citric acid is coated with hydrogenated vegetable oil which will melt and release into the meat product at 150° F.

Used to give certain products such as summer sausage and snack sticks their distinctive tang without going through a lengthy fermentation cycle.

Suggested usage for this purpose is 3 oz. for 25 lb. of meat. Encapsulated citric acid should be added near the end of the processing cycle as not to rupture the capsules during the mixing cycle. During processing the encapsulated citric acid is inactive until the temperature reaches 150° F. and then the capsule is melted releasing the citric acid into the product.

Once released a decrease in pH is achieved resulting in the distinctive "tang" associated with reduced pH products.

 

Procedure For Use

1.  Grind All Meat To Final Grind

2.  Mix In All Seasoning Except the Encapsulated Citric Acid

3.  The Encapsulated Citric Acid Must Be Added After All Grinding Is Done!

4.  Stuff the Snack Sticks and Smoke

5.  The Internal Temperature of the Sausage Must Reach 150° For The Acid To Release

6.  The Citric Acid Reduces The PH Of The Meat To Give A Tangy Taste And Decrease The Drying Time For A Firmer Sausage

7.  Have Fun While Making A Great Snack Stick

Hi Craig,
Thanks for the email. I started using Legg Pork Sausage Seasoning when my grocer went out of business nearly 15 years ago. Before that I bought my sausage from this grocer because he made it in-house with your seasoning. I didn't know what he used until he gave me a bag of it after he closed his grocery business. The label on the bag said it was #25 which I didn't see in your options for pork sausage seasoning but the ingredients appear to be the same as the #10.
(They are the same seasoning. Ask The Meatman).Since then I have been using it to make my Elk sausage. I trim all the fat and gristle and add a very lean pork steak then I grind it together with the seasoning. I usually purchase the four bag option and it will last several years but my wife and I have changed our lifestyle to a small condo in Los Alamos and a park model in Arizona that we use in the winter. We also have a motor home we travel quite a bit in. All this means is we don't have the storage for keeping extra quantities. It also means I'll have to purchase this more often and in smaller quantities. I still go elk hunting every year with my brothers who also purchase and use the Leggs Pork Sausage Seasoning. I look forward to continuing my association with your company and I recommend you to anyone who will listen.

I purchased the Leggs fresh Cajun style sausage seasoning to use with deer meat. Do I need to use quick cure with this or is it already in the mix?

{Hi Jon,  If you are not smoking the Cajun sausage before cooking it, you do not need the quick Cure. Ask The Meatman}

Thanks for the info. I have used other seasonings purchased from you and I am pleased with the results. Everyone that tries the deer sausage can't believe it's homemade.

Thanks -
You guys are INCREDIBLY FAST!! I wish everybody shipped as fast as you guys. I am an internet merchant myself, so I can appreciate what it takes to be efficient.
Thanks again,
Steve
Just wanted you to know I really liked your website. I thought I knew a lot about meat, but I learned a lot this evening!  Great Website!

Good Morning Craig.
I’m not too sure you will remember me, but about a month ago I bought the kielbasa sausage kit from your company. You were very kind in answering a ton of questions I had for you after I made the purchase.
I thought you’d like to know that I have been very successful in making the sausages. And they have won praise after praise from my family! I can not thank you and your company enough. What a total success story my online purchase and support has been.
You will definitely being hearing more from me in the future! [Not too sure if that is a good thing!]
Thank you so much for your patience and help.
