Citric Acid (Food grade)

Citric acid (E330), sodium citrate (E331) and potassium citrate (E332) are widely used in beverages and soft drinks. A combination of these three substances is used to give flavour, provide buffering properties and increase the effectiveness of preservatives. In jams, jellies and preserves, food grade citric acid is used to give a sour taste.
