Citric acid is a natural preservative which is present in citrus fruits. In the pharmaceutical industry, citric acid is widely used as a flavoring and stabilizing agent in pharmaceutical preparations. It is used to enhance fruit flavors and to import a desirable tart taste that helps mask medicinal flavors. Citric acid is used in syrups, elixirs, or combined with bicarbonates or carbonates in antacids and dentifrices. The effervescence effect improves palatability and can greatly improve the solubility of co-constituents. Citric acid helps maintain stability of the active ingredients by buffering aqueous solutions, sequestering trace metals and assisting in the dispersion of suspensions.
