So, what is cytrynian potasu?

Cytrynian potasu, also known as potassium citrate, is a white crystalline powder that is used as an acidity regulator, flavoring agent, and preservative in the food industry. It is derived from citric acid and has a slightly salty taste with a sour aftertaste. This ingredient is commonly added to soft drinks, jams, jellies, processed meats, and other food products to balance pH levels and enhance flavor. In addition to its culinary uses, cytrynian potasu is also used in medicine to treat kidney stones and urinary tract infections due to its ability to increase urinary citrate levels.
