Citric Acid (Food Grade)

Citric acid (E330) is an acidulant providing flavouring, preservation and colouring. It delivers a mild tart taste and is popular in soft drinks, sports nutrition products, confectionery, desserts and food supplements.


Citric acid imparts a slightly tart, refreshing flavour. It is used as a flavouring agent, colouring agent and preservative.

It can also be used to control pH, boosting taste, texture and colour. By acting as an antioxidant, it can help to maintain freshness. It also acts as an emulsifying agent, preventing fats from separating.

Our food-grade format citric acid is available as a white crystalline powder and a colourless liquid in a range of bulk sizes.
