What is Citric Acid?
Citric Acid is a natural, weak organic acid that is found in many fruits and vegetables, especially citrus. Citric Acid has a sour flavour, preservative quality, and ability to act as a pH buffer. For these reasons, Citric Acid is found on the ingredient list of many food products today. It is the most widely used organic acidulate across all industries because it:
- Buffers p9H levels
- Stabilises colour, taste, flavour and vitamins
- Acts as a preservative in many foods and beverages
- Provides solubility in many pharmaceutical products
- Chelates metals (forms molecules with metal ions making them inactive to avoid reaction with other elements)
- Acts as a non-corrosive descaler in many applications
