Citric Acid is a naturally occurring tricarboxylic acid commonly found in plants and animals. In its pure form, it is a colorless compound readily soluble in water. Citric acid can be obtained from natural sources (e.g. lemon, lime and orange) and synthetically produced either via chemical reaction or microbial fermentation. Large-volume industrial production of Citric Acid, however, is based almost exclusively on microbial fermentation of carbohydrate substrate, in which a strain of Aspergillus niger is employed to convert sugar to citric acid.
