Descripción general

Citric acid is an important organic acid that is extensively used in the food industry as a pH control agent, flavor modifier, an antimicrobial agent, a leavening agent and as an antioxidant. The treatment of potato-based foods with a combination of citric acid and glycine in low concentration may reduce the formation of acrylamide with minimal effect on the flavor. Citric acid is also an effective anti-browning agent of food and beverages due to its ability to inhibit the activity of polyphenol oxidase (PPO) enzyme responsible for browning.
