Product Typical Properties
It is the most functional and versatile sour flavor agent. It has high solubility and strong chelating ability to metal ions, and can be used in various foods. It can be used in moderation according to production needs. In addition, this product can also be used as an antioxidant synergist, synergist for complex potato starch bleach, and preservative. Widely used as an acid flavoring agent and pharmaceutical additive in Chemicalbook food and beverages. It can also be used as a raw material and additive for cosmetics, metal cleaning agents, mordants, non-toxic plasticizers, and boiler scale inhibitors. Its main salt products include sodium citrate, calcium, and ammonium salts. Sodium citrate is a blood anticoagulant, while ferric ammonium citrate can be used as a blood tonic.
Widely used in the production of various beverages, fruit juices, canned goods, candies, jams, and jellies, making the product refreshing and delicious with a fruity sweetness.
