So, what is sitruunahappo?

Sitruunahappo, also known as citric acid, is a versatile food ingredient that occurs naturally in citrus fruits such as lemons and limes. It is widely used as a preservative, flavor enhancer, and acidifier in a variety of food products, including beverages, canned fruits, jams, and dairy products. With its sour taste and ability to enhance fruity flavors, sitruunahappo is a popular choice for chefs and food manufacturers alike. Additionally, it is often used in cleaning products and as an eco-friendly alternative to harsh chemicals due to its ability to break down tough stains and grime. Despite its name, sitruunahappo is not solely derived from lemons but can also be produced through microbial fermentation of various carbohydrates.
