Product Description

Description: Citric acid is found naturally in citrus fruits, especially lemons and limes. It’s what gives them their tart, sour taste. A manufactured form of citric acid is commonly used as an additive in food, cleaning agents, and nutritional supplements. Citric acid is a weak acid that is found naturally in all citrus fruits. If you’ve ever sunk your teeth into a lemon, you’ve tasted citric acid. Manufacturers add a man-made version of it to processed foods. Medicines with citric acid in them treat health issues like kidney stones.
Inherently natural as it occurs in citric fruits, produced by fermentation of carbohydrates. Fine white powder, odorless. pH Value 2.2 (0.1% solution). Easily soluble in water.
