Description

Critric acid is made from starch by advanced biological technology,It is a  white  crystalline powder.It can exist either in anhydrous(water-free)from or monohydrate.The  anhydrous from crystallizes from hot water,whereas the monohydrate forms when citric acid is  crystallized form cold water.When heated above 175, it decomposes through the loss of carbon dioxide and water.
