About Citric Acid: The Basics

With more than a million tons of it manufactured annually, it's not just one of the most popular acidulants, it's also one of the most popular food and beverage ingredients.

Its popularity isn't something new either since, it has been in industrial-scale production since the last 1800s.

Although all citrus fruit are rich in citric acid, lemons and limes are the two fruit where its the most readily available where it can make nearly 10% of the fruit's dry weight.

On the scale of weak-to-strong acids that can be used in food and beverage manufacturing, citric acid is among the strongest ones, which means its easy to use for both its flavor and preservative attributes. (It's also one of the reasons its so prevalent in soft drinks.)
