Citric acid is the trade name for citric acid, which is an organic compound from the group of hydroxy carboxylic acids, obtained by chemical synthesis or by lemon fermentation of purified sugar or starch hydrolyzate with mold cultures. Citric acid is used in the food industry as an additive responsible for a stable pH level, acidity regulator and antioxidant. Citric acid alone – E330 – is not a preservative, but the addition of even a small amount significantly reduces the pH, which creates an acidic environment in which the growth time of microorganisms is prolonged, and vitamins are much better absorbed by the human body. Due to such conditions, vitamins and other important food ingredients have a longer shelf life. The level of use in products is not defined or limited in any way. It is used, among others, in the production of chocolate and cocoa products, fruit products, unprocessed fish, crustaceans, molluscs, as well as in the packaging of freshly ground meat. In cosmetics, its antioxidant properties are used to fight free radicals, which reduces damage to skin cells and slows down its aging processes.
