What is Tri Potassium Citrate?

Tri Potassium Citrate (TPC) is a potassium salt of citric acid. It is a white, odourless, highly soluble powder used as a food additive, dietary supplement, and buffering agent.

Tri Potassium Citrate manufacturing occurs by neutralizing citric acid with potassium hydroxide or potassium carbonate. The reaction produces TPC as a white crystalline solid, which is then purified and dried. The resulting product is a highly pure form of TPC that is suitable for use in a wide range of applications.
