Overview: What is Citric Acid?
Citric Acid is one of the most commonly added ingredients into a vast array of products throughout the world. The many uses range from pH balancing through to flavour enhancements in countless industries.
Although you can find Citric Acid naturally in a range of citrus fruits (most commonly Lemons), there are other routes of industrial manufacture also. The most modern method of manufacture is through high-pressure production of calcium salts. You can also create this through treating the juice with hydrated lime, isolated and diluted with Sulfuric acid. Because of this method, Citric Acid is now manufacturable with most sugars. In terms of manufacturing, in 2018, there have been over 2 million tonnes of Citric Acid 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 sold as 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.
