Citric Acid Description

Citric acid appears as colourless, odourless crystals with an acid taste and is denser than water. Citric acid is a tricarboxylic acid that is propane-1,2,3-tricarboxylic acid bearing a hydroxy substituent at position 2. It is an important metabolite in the pathway of all aerobic organisms. It has a role as a food acidity regulator, a chelator, an antimicrobial agent and a fundamental metabolite. It is a conjugate acid of a citrate(1-) and a citrate anion.

The microbial production of citric acid on a commercial scale is done by certain strains of Aspergillus niger to produce citric acid on the surface of a sucrose and salt solution. In the deep tank submerged process, Aspergillus niger mold spores are grown under controlled aseptic conditions on a test-tube slant and transferred to a seed tank or inoculum which is added to a fermentor along with pasteurized syrup. The pH is adjusted and nutrients added. Sterile air is sparged into the fermenter while the sugar is converted to citric acid. The citric acid is usually purified using either a lime-sulfuric acid method or a liquid extraction process.
