L-malic acid

L-malic acid is an important natural organic acid, widely distributed in plant, animal and microbial cells, and its taste is close to the sour taste of natural apples. In 1967, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration registered as a safe, non-toxic, harmless, edible organic acid. L-malic acid is a tetracarbonic acid. Because of its chiral structure, it generally exists in the following three forms, namely D-malic acid, DL-malic acid and L-malic acid, and L-malic acid exists in nature.

PRODUCT DETAILS

Product Description:

Malic acid is an important component of natural fruit juice. Compared with citric acid, it has a higher acidity (20% stronger acidity than citric acid), but has a soft taste (with a higher buffer index), has a special fragrance, and does not damage the oral cavity. It is a new generation of food acidulant, and it is praised as "the most ideal food acidulant".

L-malic acid is an organic acid necessary for the human body and an ideal food additive with low calories. When 50% L-malic acid is combined with 20% citric acid, a strong natural fruit flavor can be exhibited.

Food industry application:


Malic acid is an important component of natural fruit juice. Compared with citric acid, it has a higher acidity (20% stronger acidity than citric acid), but has a soft taste (with a higher buffer index), has a special fragrance, and does not damage the oral cavity. It is a new generation of food acidulant, and it is praised as "the most ideal food acidulant" by the biological and nutritional circles.


L-malic acid is an organic acid necessary for the human body and an ideal food additive with low calories. When 50% L-malic acid is combined with 20% citric acid, a strong natural fruit flavor can be exhibited.

Beverages (all kinds of refreshing beverages): Soft drinks prepared with L-malic acid are thirst-quenching and refreshing, with a sour taste of apple, close to natural fruit juice.

L-malic acid is a circulating intermediate of biological tricarboxylic acid. Compared with citric acid, L-malic acid produces less heat and tastes better. Therefore, L-malic acid is widely used in wine, beverages, jam, chewing gum and other foods, and has the tendency to gradually replace citric acid. It is one of the organic acids with the largest consumption and good development prospects in the world food industry.

L-malic acid contains natural moisturizing ingredients, which can easily dissolve the "glue" stuck between the dry scaly dead cells, so as to remove the wrinkles on the surface of the skin, making the skin tender, white, smooth and elastic. Therefore, it is popular in cosmetic formulas; L-malic acid can be used to prepare a variety of essence and spices for a variety of daily chemical products, such as toothpaste, shampoo, etc; Compared with citric acid, L-malic acid has a soft and unique sour taste. Therefore, it is used abroad to replace citric acid as a new type of detergent additive to synthesize high-grade special detergents.
