Lem-O-Cit (Citric Acid)
Lem-O-Cit, also known as citric acid, is a natural acid found in many fruits, including lemons, limes, and oranges. It is a white crystalline powder that is highly soluble in water and has a sour taste.
Citric acid has a wide range of uses in the food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries. In food, it is commonly used as a flavouring agent and a preservative, as it can inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi. It is also used as an acidulant in soft drinks, jams, and jellies, to give a sour taste and to balance the pH of the food.
