Is Citric Acid from China the same as North American Citric Acid?
Chemically speaking, yes, they are the same product. Citric Acid is a highly soluble white, crystalline powder with a strongly acidic taste. It is a naturally occurring fruit acid and is also produced commercially by microbial fermentation of a carbohydrate substrate.
Citric Acid is the most widely used organic acid and pH-control agent in foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals and technical applications. Citric Acid Anhydrous is particularly recommended in dry blends.
What is the difference with North American Citric Acid?
This product is from China. When the application and compliance allow citric acid to be manufactured outside North America, this product is a great economical alternative.
