The Green Revolution: Citribel's sustainable Practices in Citric Acid for a Healthier Food Industry

In today’s food industry, prioritising environmentally conscious choices is critical to ensuring product quality and promoting a sustainable future. At Citribel, we are proud to take on the challenge of integrating sustainable solutions into our citric acid production process, setting a new standard for environmentally friendly practices in the food industry.

1. Optimal Citric Acid Concentration with Extra Dry Process

Citribel offers food manufacturers a dual benefit by focusing on anhydrous and monohydrate forms of citric acid.


The extra dry process achieves the optimal citric acid concentration, enhancing the flavour profile of food products and extending their shelf life. This application is particularly valuable in the production of beverages, jams, and canned goods.

2. Safer and Healthier Products

Citribel’s strict limit of 1 ppm for heavy metals ensures that our citric acid contributes to the creation of safer and healthier food products.
This is particularly important in the production of baby foods and dietary supplements, where consumer safety is paramount. Our proactive monitoring of heavy metals guarantees that the end products not only meet but exceed quality standards, setting a new benchmark for safety in the industry.

Moreover, Citribel is distinguished by its exclusion of tridodecylamine, a compound commonly found in solvent-extracted citric acid. This practice is particularly significant in the production of baby foods, as it ensures the purity and safety of our citric acid, aligning with the stringent standards required for infant nutrition.

3. Precision in Quality Control for Bakery and Confectionery

Precision is crucial in food specialties such as bakery or confectionery.

Citribel’s monitoring of iron, calcium, and chlorides takes quality control to a new level. Our commitment to maintaining strict limits on these minerals ensures that citric acid plays a vital role in achieving the desired textures and tastes in baked goods and confectionery items.

4. Clean Label Products and Sustainable Packaging

Reducing sulfates and oxalates in our production process aligns with the growing demand for clean label products and promotes sustainable and eco-friendly practices.

By using Citribel’s citric acid, food manufacturers can cater to environmentally conscious consumers and contribute to a cleaner environment.

By embracing Citribel’s sustainable citric acid, the food industry gains access to a versatile ingredient that meets the highest quality standards and addresses the evolving needs of consumers. Join us on the journey towards a greener and more sustainable future, where citric acid plays a central role in shaping the food products of tomorrow.
