What is citric acid?
Citric acid is a weak acid that is found naturally in all citrus fruits such as lemons and oranges. Because of its acidic, sour-tasting nature, citric acid is predominantly used as a flavouring and preserving agent — especially in soft drinks and candies. It’s also used to stabilize or preserve medicines and as a disinfectant against viruses and bacteria.
Manufactured citric acid is one of the most common food additives in the world. It’s used to boost acidity, enhance flavour, and preserve ingredients.
Citric acid is an industrial staple in medicines and dietary supplements. It’s added to medicines to help stabilize and preserve the active ingredients and used to enhance the taste of medications.
