So, what is succinic acid?

Succinic acid is a natural, water-soluble dicarboxylic acid that is commonly used as a food ingredient due to its acidic and tart taste. It is found naturally in various fruits, such as grapes and berries, and is also produced by the human body as part of the citric acid cycle. In food, it is often used as a flavor enhancer and preservative, as well as in the production of certain beverages, such as wine and beer. Additionally, succinic acid has been studied for its potential health benefits, including its ability to boost energy levels and reduce inflammation in the body.
