Citric acid is a white, odorless, and weak crystalline acid with a sour taste. It is formed during the Krebs cycle and is an intermediate in the citric acid cycle, which takes place in the metabolism of all aerobic organisms. It is naturally found in various plants, particularly citrus fruits, such as lemon, orange, grapefruits, and pomelos. Citric acid can be obtained in either an anhydrous form, which is water-free, or as a monohydrate. The anhydrous form of citric acid crystallizes in hot water, whereas the monohydrate form crystallizes in cold water. It helps in improving metabolism and enhances nutrient absorption in the body.
Citric acid (C6H8O7) is an organic tricarboxylic acid with a monoclinic crystal structure and a strongly acidic taste. It has a boiling point of 310 °C and a melting point of approximately 153 °C with a molecular mass of 192.124 g/mol and a density of 1.66 g/cm³. Citric acid is easily soluble in water and ethanol and slightly soluble in ether and ethyl acetate. However, it is insoluble in alcohol, benzene, and chloroform.
Citric acid is one of the most popular edible acids used as an acidulant, flavoring agent, and preservative in foods and beverages, especially carbonated soft drinks and candies. Along with this, the rising demand for ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages and processed foods in developing countries due to significant economic growth, busy lifestyles, rapid urbanization, and inflating consumer disposable incomes is positively influencing the market growth. Citric acid is also added to ice cream as an emulsifying agent to prevent the separation of fats or as a substitute for fresh lemon juice in recipes. In addition, it is used with sodium bicarbonate in various effervescent formulas for ingestion and personal care. It is also utilized in culinary applications as a pure acid substitute for vinegar or lemon juice. Moreover, citric acid is employed for controlling the growth of microorganisms, adjusting pH levels, and adding sourness to numerous products. It is often used as a co-builder in household detergents and cleaners, especially in concentrated liquid detergents that contain zeolite builder systems. Apart from this, citric acid finds extensive applications as a stabilizer in manufacturing medicines and personal care products. Furthermore, the rising product adoption as an iron control additive in the oil sector for chelating and maintaining the pH of acidizing fluids is propelling market growth. Besides this, the increasing citric acid applications in health and dietary supplements, shifting preferences toward organic food additives, and growing product utilization in developing photographic films are other factors creating a positive market outlook.
