So, what is ammonium citrate?

Ammonium citrate is a white crystalline powder that is commonly used as a food additive and buffering agent. It is a combination of ammonium and citric acid, which makes it acidic in nature. Ammonium citrate is often used in the food industry as an emulsifier and flavoring agent. It is also used as a fertilizer for plants, as well as a component in some medications. Its ability to regulate acidity, enhance flavor, and act as a stabilizer makes it a versatile ingredient in various food applications. However, excessive consumption of ammonium citrate can lead to health complications, making it important to use it in moderation.
