Is your Citric Acid Natural?
Citric acid is manufactured by the natural process of fermentation by using naturally derived carbohydrates. The strains used for the manufacturing are not genetically modified according to the directive 90/219/EC and as amended in directive 2001/18/EC. Citric acid undergoes several purification steps and is finally obtained in its highly pure nature identical form.
The salts, mono- and trisodium citrate, tricalcium citrate, trimagnesium citrate, tripotassium citrate, and zinc citrate are prepared by neutralizing the above citric acid with the respective mineral source. These products undergo several purification steps and are finally obtained in their highly pure form.
Because there is no particular regulation in the United States that defines the requirements for a ""natural"" product, we advise companies to evaluate the natural status with their own regulatory and label experts.
