General information

Jungbunzlauer LIQUINAT® is citric acid (E-Number E330, CAS-No. 77-92-9) in liquid form, produced by a microbial fermentation of a carbohydrate substrate. Due to its advantages in handling, LIQUINAT® is widely used as acid and pH-control agent in foods, beverages and pharmaceuticals.

LIQUINAT® is a clear, practically colourless and practically odourless solution with a pure, fruit-sour flavour. It is a stable, non-volatile solution and completely miscible in water. 

LIQUINAT® is strongly acidic but non-toxic and environmentally safe. It is fully biodegradable and can be disposed with normal sewage after neutralisation according to local legislation.
