Wikipedia SummaryIn biochemistry, it is an intermediate in the citric acid cycle, which occurs in the metabolism of all aerobic organisms. It is used widely as an acidifier, as a flavoring and a chelating agent.A citrate is a derivative of citric acid; that is, the salts, esters, and the polyatomic anion found in solution. After the mold is filtered out of the resulting solution, citric acid is isolated by precipitating it with calcium hydroxide to yield calcium citrate salt, from which citric acid is regenerated by treatment with sulfuric acid, as in the direct extraction from citrus fruit juice. Because it is one of the stronger edible acids, the dominant use of citric acid is as a flavoring and preservative in food and beverages, especially soft drinks and candies. Citric acid is an alpha hydroxy acid and is an active ingredient in chemical skin peels.Citric acid is commonly used as a buffer to increase the solubility of brown heroin.Citric acid is used as one of the active ingredients in the production of facial tissues with antiviral properties.
