    The main application of Citric Acid Monohydrate
    • Citric acid monohydrate imparts a fresh, sour taste to beverages, frozen desserts, candies, and canned fruit. It highlights fruit flavors through acid-base interactions.
    • In carbonated soft drinks, citric acid monohydrate not only provides flavor but also acts as a buffer to ensure a smooth acidity on the palate. It controls pH for optimal taste.
    • Citric acid monohydrate adjusts the acidity of pharmaceutical syrups, solutions, powders, and tablets to improve patient acceptability and stability.
    • As a descaling agent in detergents, citric acid monohydrate removes mineral buildup by chelating hard water ions like calcium and magnesium. This prevents clogging and maintains cleaning efficiency.
    • Citric acid monohydrate uses as an acidifier and alkalinity regulator in water treatment applications to control pH and prevent pipe corrosion.
    • A solution of citric acid monohydrate is applied topically to metals and alloys to brighten surfaces by chelating to remove tarnish, rust, and other oxide layers.
