DL-Malic acid offers a mouthfeel close to that of natural juice and has natural fragrance. Compared with citric acid, malic acid has higher acidity (20 percent higher), lower quantity of heat, softer taste, higher buffering factor and more lasting time; however, it is not so corrosive as citric acid that leads to series enamel wear, and it is harmless to mouth cavity and teeth. As a new generation of food acidity regulator, malic acid is known as “best food acidity regulator” in biological and nutritional fields. It is widely used in foods such as wines, beverages, fruit juices and chewing gums. It is not only the third food acidity regulator coming after citric acid and lactic acid, but also one of the biggest and most promising organic acids in food industry across the current world. L-style is procued by fermentation, used as functionality ingredients.

Usage:Malic acid can be added in cool drinks, powder drinks, lactic acid drinks, milk drinks and fruit juice drinks to improve their tastes and flavors. Malic acid is often added together with Aspartame, an artificially synthesized dipeptide sweetener, into soft drinks as the flavor stabilizer. In recent years, malic acid which is more irritating than lactic acid has gradually replaced lactic acid in food industry. Besides a certain amount of pectin and sugar, acid is another key factor in a gel forming process. Malic acid is capable of gelatinating pectin and therefore can be used for making fruitcakes, jelly fruit juice, puree, etc.
