How much Vitamin C to add to keep mold away...

Making dog treats for a girl scout project... How much Vitamin C should be added to each batch to help prevent molding?

Dog Treat Icing Expert:

Typically, people use about 1/8 teaspoon citric acid per cup of dry ingredients. You have to adjust this based on your environment and contents. Artificial preservatives work better but they are artificial and some people do not want to use them.

The real issue with mold is moisture. The drier you make your treats, the better. Treats that are straight out of the oven can be moist inside and not appear so. I recommend that you let them stay in the oven while the oven cools down. Also you can dehydrate them to really avoid the mold as much as possible.

Happy Baking,
