Citric acid got its name more than 200 years ago when it was first made from lemon juice. It is believed that it was known earlier but under a different name.
Citric acid was originally obtained from citrus fruits. Nowadays it is produced industrially by fermentation of raw materials containing sugar, such as corn. Molds (Aspergillus Niger) are used for fermentation.
In USA and China, genetically modified variants (GMO) of the mold can be used, but this is not permitted in Europe.
Citric acid and citrates are used in food (E330). They serve as preservatives, acidity regulators and flavor enhancers.
