It is commonly used as a food ingredient to add sourness and tartness to a variety of food products, including soft drinks, candies, jams, and canned fruits. It also functions as a preservative, helping to prevent bacterial growth and extend the shelf life of food products. Citric acid is a versatile ingredient that can enhance the flavor and texture of food, making it a popular choice for food manufacturers and chefs alike.
