Acidulants

The Finishing Touch for Flavor, Color Stability & Moisture Control

An ingredient doesn’t need to be glamorous or new to be important to delivering a product consumers love. Citric acid and citrates provide important functional benefits across a range of applications—flavor/tartness, high solubility, buffering capacity, chelation of metals, and antioxidant benefits.

Our citric acid portfolio leverages our deep expertise in sourcing plant-based ingredients, our mastery of market risk management and our unparalleled global supply chain and logistics. So you get quality ingredients at a competitive cost, when and where you need them.
