Origin: Citric Acid is a naturally occurring preservative which can be found in citrus fruits. Produced as a result of the fermentation of sugar, it has a tart to bitter taste.
Application: Citric Acid extends shelf life by adjusting the acidity or pH of food, and it can also help enhance flavours. It works especially well with other fruits, providing a fresh taste. Citric Acid is often used as an emulsifier to keeps fats and liquids from separating. It is also a common component in spherification where it may be used as an acid buffer.
