Citric Acid Anhydrous




Making Bath Bombs

Description: A colorless, crystalline organic compound belonging to the family of carboxylic acids, present in practically all plants and in many animal tissues and fluids. It is one of a series of compounds involved in the physiological oxidation of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates to carbon dioxide and water (see tricarboxylic acid cycle).
First isolated from lemon juice by a Swedish chemist, Carl Wilhelm Scheele, in 1784, citric acid is manufactured by fermentation of cane sugar or molasses in the presence of a fungus, Aspergillus niger. It is used in confections and soft drinks (as a flavoring agent), in metal-cleaning compositions, and in improving the stability of foods and other organic substances (by suppressing the deleterious action of dissolved metal salts).

Synonyms: beta-hydroxytricarballylic acid; aciletten; citretten; Citro; hydrocerol a; 2-Hydroxytricarballylic acid; 2-Hydroxy-1,2,3-propanetricarboxylic acid; Hydroxytricarballylic acid; citrate ion; Citralite.
