25 Kilo Bag Options for Citric Acid

What is Citric Acid?

One of the most common ingredients, Citric Acid, is added to countless products worldwide. The many uses range from pH balancing to flavour enhancements in multiple industries.

Although you can find it naturally in a range of citrus fruits (most commonly Lemon), there are other routes of industrial manufacture for Citric Acid. The most modern method of manufacture is through high-pressure production of calcium salts. You can also create this by treating the juice with hydrated lime, isolated and diluted with Sulfuric Acid. In terms of manufacturing, in 2018, over 2 million tonnes of Citric Acid was manufactured, with over 50% created in China alone.

These industries include food and beverage manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, industrial businesses and beyond. Most commonly, Citric is a white to colourless crystalline granule, with mesh size options available to suit most businesses' needs. This granularity also makes it a suitable choice for a solution, which Kilo also can supply upon request.
