Food Ingredient

We have profound expertise and network to supply the world’s renowned brand of Citric acid. Because of its acidic, sour-tasting nature, citric acid is predominantly used as a flavoring and preserving agent, especially in soft drinks and candies.
The odorless and colorless compound was produced from lemon juice until the early 1900s when researchers discovered that it could also be made from the black mold Aspergillus niger, which creates citric acid when it feeds on sugar.
It’s also used to stabilize or preserve medicines and as a disinfectant.

Citric acid is one of many metabolites produced by Aspergillus species. It possesses sweet-and-sour sensory notes, and succinic acid has a salty—bitter taste. With the change in soil and climatic condition, the citric acid amount in vegetables and fruits also varies. 

Applications

  • Boilers and Evaporators
  • Soaps & Laundry Detergents
  • Household cleaners
  • Deodorizers
  • Cosmetics
  • Personal Care products
  • Water Treatment
  • Lotions
