Citric acid is a weak organic tricarboxylic acid having the chemical formula C6H8O7. It occurs naturally in citrus fruits. In biochemistry, it is an intermediate in the citric acid cycle, which occurs in the metabolism of all aerobic organisms.More than a million tons of citric acid are manufactured every year. It is used widely as an acidifier, as a flavoring and chelating agent.
1.For the food industry
Because citric acid has a mild and sour acidity, it is commonly used in the manufacture of various beverages, sodas, wines, candies, snacks, biscuits, canned juices, dairy products and the like. In the market of all organic acids, citric acid market share of more than 70%, flavoring agents, can also be used as antioxidants in edible oils. At the same time improve the sensory traits of food, enhance appetite and promote the digestion and absorption of calcium and phosphorus substances in the body. Anhydrous citric acid is used in large quantities in solid beverages Salts of citric acid such as calcium citrate and ferric citrate are fortifiers that require the addition of calcium and iron ions in certain foods.
2.Used in the chemical and textile industries
Citric acid can be used as a chemical analysis reagent for chemical analysis, as an experimental reagent, a chromatographic reagent and a biochemical reagent; as a complexing agent and a masking agent; for preparing a buffer solution. The use of citric acid or citrate as a builder can improve the performance of the washing product, can quickly precipitate metal ions, prevent the re-attachment of contaminants on the fabric, maintain the necessary alkalinity for washing, and disperse and suspend the dirt and ash; Improves the performance of surfactants, is an excellent chelating agent; can be used as an acid-resistant reagent for testing architectural ceramic tiles.
3.For environmental protection
Citric acid-sodium citrate buffer is used for flue gas desulfurization.
Citric acid is a kind of fruit acid. Its main function is to accelerate the renewal of keratin. It is often used in lotion, cream, shampoo, whitening products, anti-aging products, acne products. The renewal of keratin helps the exfoliation of melanin in the skin, the shrinkage of pores, the dissolution of blackheads, and the like.
