Citric Acid

Citric Acid occurs widely in plants and animals as a common intermediate metabolite of the Krebs (citric acid) cycle in virtually all organisms. It is the acid responsible for the characteristic tartness of citrus and many other fruits. Formerly citric acid was extracted from lemon juice, but today the citric acid is obtained by microbial fermentation of a carbohydrate such as glucose syrup using a selected strain of micro-organism.

Characteristics: Citric acid is an odorless, white crystalline powder or granular particles which dissolve readily in water. 

Citric acid shows the widest buffering capacity (pH 2.5-6.5) of all organic acids, and therefore provides our customers in the food, personal care and pharmaceutical industries with the flexibility needed to formulate high quality end products. In addition, citric acid’s chelating ability along with its non-toxic/environmentally friendly properties have found applications in industries as diverse as coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers (CASE), household and industrial cleaning (HIC), agrochemical, and oil and gas.

Univar Solutions provides citric acid in granular, fine granular, powder or liquid form to food and other industries offering professional service at every touchpoint.  With more than 120 distribution facilities across the USA, we can serve your citric acid need where you need it, when you need it.
