Acetic Acid (Food Grade) is a colourless, hygroscopic, and organic acid that can be used in many food applications. Used as an antiseptic, acetic acid (Food Grade) is an antibacterial agent, disinfecting food preparation surfaces against staphylococci, streptococci, pseudomonas, enterococci, and other bacteria.
Considered as a weak acid, Acetic acid (Food Grade) is mainly used as a preservative, acidulating agent, and flavouring agent for ice-creams, non-alcoholic beverages and baked goods. It is one of the main volatile constituents of vinegar and pyroligneous acid. In combination with leavening agents, it produces carbon dioxide from sodium bicarbonate.
This grade of Acetic Acid meets the requirements of the Food Chemical Codex and is produced under appropriate current good manufacturing practices for use as a food additive. Acetic acid comes in different concentrations from 5 – 75% and sizes.
