Adipic Acid

Adipic acid, also known as hexanedioic acid, is produced from a mixture of cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone with air or nitric acid. .  Adipic acid is naturally found in beets and sugar cane.   Adipic acid is commonly added as the main acid in bottled drinks, giving them a bubbly fizz.  It is also adds a tart flavor to fruit juice and gelatin.  The organic acid is used in many powdered food and drink mixes to provide a sweet flavor.  Along with adding tartness, Adipic acid allows jam, gelatin and jelly to jiggle but still hold their shape.    Adipic acid adds texture to some types of cheese and can serve as a leavening agent in baking powder, cake mixes and baked goods.   Food oil manufacturers add Adipic acid to their edible oils in order to prolong the time it takes for bottled oils to become rancid.    When used as a food acidulant in products, acidic acid is clearly identified in the ingredient list by its name or food additive number 355.
