So, what is citrate de?

Citrate de is a food ingredient that is commonly used as an acidity regulator and emulsifier. It is a salt of citric acid and can be found in a variety of processed foods, such as soft drinks, dairy products, and baked goods. Citrate de is often used as a substitute for other acidulants, such as phosphoric acid, because it provides a milder, less sour taste. It is also used to prevent spoilage and extend the shelf life of food products. Citrate de is considered safe for consumption and is approved by regulatory agencies around the world.
