Primarily used as a food additive, Trisodium Citrate is utilised as a flavouring agent in a number of commercially ready to drink beverages and drink mixes thanks to its tart flavour attributes.
As well as being used in beverages, trisodium citrate is often used in the production of a number of foods to increase shelf life whilst adding flavour. There are occasions that the citrate is also used in the production of cheese as an emulsifier for the oils.

As a conjugate base to citric acid Trisodium Citrate serves to buffer changes in acidity. When it is present in a solution it will require more acid than normal to change and decrease the pH of the solution. This is a useful product trait as it makes it easier to make fine adjustments to acidity.
Trisodium citrate manufacturers tend to have limitations on delivery quantities but as Rigest have built lasting relationship with trusted manufacturers you don’t need to worry about anything.
