Citric acid uses in food industry

2. Citric acid also has a chelating effect, which can remove certain harmful metals. Citric acid can prevent oxidation caused by enzyme catalysis and metal catalysis, thereby preventing quick-frozen fruits from discoloring and flavoring.
3. In terms of food additives, it is mainly used in carbonated beverages, fruit juice beverages, lactic acid beverages and other refreshing beverages and pickled products. The demand is subject to seasonal climate changes. Citric acid accounts for about 2/3 of the total consumption of sour agents.
