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

What is it used for? 

  • Bath Bombs - we recommend using 2 parts Sodium Bicarbonate to 1 Part Citric Acid.
  • Descaling - Kettles, Baby Sterilisers, Shower Heads etc.
  • Remove Limescale Deposits on sinks, taps, shower screens, tiles, toilets etc.
  • Home Brewing Ingredient.
  • Water Softening – to chelate metals.
  • Food and Drink – an acidulant e.g. in lemonade and on fizzy ‘sour’ sweets.
