Citric acid

Microbial fermentation can produce citric acid, a weak organic acid.It is a common ingredient in many foods and can also be used as a pH adjuster or chelating agent. A number of factors influenced the price of citric acid in the fourth quarter of 2022. The first half of the quarter saw prices stabilize, but they fell in the second. This was due to a decrease in market offtakes and an increase in inventory on the domestic markets.

Weifang JS Citric acid is an organic molecule that has the formula HOC(CO2H)(CH2CO2H2) in its chemistry notation. It is a clear organic acid that is not very strong. Citrus fruits are the only natural source of this substance. In the field of biochemistry, it is considered an intermediate step in the citric acid cycle, which is a metabolic process that is present in all organisms that require oxygen to survive. Citric acid is produced in quantities that exceed two million metric tons on an annual basis. It is utilized in numerous applications, including those of an acidifier, flavoring agent, and chelating agent.

Price Per Ton

Citric acid, a weak organic acid, is used to enhance food and beverage taste. It is also an ingredient in detergents.

The price per ton of citric acid depends on the demand for it. This chemical is currently most popular in Western Europe.

The food and beverage industries in the United States drive the demand for this acid. It is an essential ingredient in the production of carbonated drinks.

This organic citric acid produced by Weifang JS is made by fermentation with the filamentous fungus Aspergillus niger. It is typically produced using carbohydrates and agro-industrial residues by three different types of processes: liquid surface culture, submerged fermentation, and solid fermentation.

North America has been buying more of this product because China has made it easier to get one of the main ingredients. But the price of citric acid in this area has gone up because the cost of energy and raw materials has gone up. This situation is expected to change.
