Sodium citrates are salts of citric acid (E330), which, as intermediate products of energy metabolism (citric acid cycle), are present in every living cell. The human body’s citrate turnover rate is about two kilograms a day. Monosodium citrate, disodium citrate and trisodium citrate, which all have different acidic effects, can be produced from citric acid. Sodium citrates are primarily used as an acidity regulator for gelling processes with pectin.


Sodium citrates are produced from citric acid (E330).


Its increasing use in drinks and “sour” candies is resulting ever more frequently in tooth decay in children and adults because the enamel is attacked by the acid, e.g. in iced tea in baby bottles. The consumption of larger amounts is not recommended.


GMOs might be used during production.
