Citric acid is the most commonly used acidulant in the industry. As a food additive or food grade product, citric acid is used as a flavoring and preservative. The buffering properties of citrates are used to control pH and flavor.

Sodium Citrate is a shortened term for Trisodium Citrate and is used as an antioxidant in food as well as to improve the effects of other antioxidants. Sodium Citrate can also be used as an acidity regulator and sequestrant.

Potassium Citrate acts a buffering agent to adjust the pH when added to water to form buffer solutions.
