    Product Overview

    Anhydrous citric acid is a colorless or translucent crystal or crystalline powder. The density of anhydrous citric acid is about 1.665 g/cm3. Anhydrous citric acid is easily soluble in water above 50°C but has limited solubility in cold water. The aqueous solution is acidic. 1% anhydrous citric acid ph solution is approximately 2.2. Anhydrous citric acid exists in crystalline form for easy storage and handling. It is a common food additive widely used in the food industry and cosmetics.

    The main application of Citric Acid Anhydrous
    • In foods such as dressings, sauces, juices and jams, anhydrous citric acid imparts a clean, sour flavor and acidity to enhance taste. Its antioxidant properties also help preserve freshness and prevent oxidation of photosensitive vitamins.
    • Anhydrous citric acid uses in carbonated beverages to impart a refreshing sour taste. It interacts with flavor compounds to enhance taste and acts as an acidulant. Adjusted acidity improves drinkability.
    • In baking, anhydrous citric acid improves dough handling and gas retention. It acts as a leavening regulator for optimum leavening of baked goods such as cakes, bread, and biscuits.
    • Anhydrous citric acid adjusts and buffers pH levels in cosmetics such as shampoos, sunscreens, and facial treatments. It provides stability in aqueous environments against hydrolysis and microbial growth.
    • Anhydrous citric acid is used as a feed acidifier and granule binder in animal nutrition, which is beneficial to nutrient absorption and improves feed conversion rate.
    • In pharmaceutical formulations, anhydrous citric acid can adjust drug solubility to enhance bioavailability, mask bitter taste, and serve as a controlled-release tablet disintegrant.
