So, what is sulfuric acid?

Sulfuric acid, also known as oil of vitriol, is a highly corrosive and dense liquid that is commonly used in the food industry as a food additive, preservative, and acidulant. It is colorless and odorless and has a molecular formula of H2SO4. Sulfuric acid is a strong acid that can react violently with water and other substances, making it an extremely hazardous material to handle. It is used to make many food ingredients such as citric acid, as well as to improve the shelf life of certain foods. Despite its potential dangers, sulfuric acid is a crucial ingredient in the food industry and is carefully handled by trained professionals.
