What is SODIUM CITRATE?

Most likely Trisodium Citrate, which is made from fermenting molasis infused with citric acid.


Where does SODIUM CITRATE come from?

Sodium citrate can be; Monosodium citrate, Disodium citrate, or Trisodium citrate

  • sodium carbonate or sodium bicarbonate + citric acid = Monosodium citrate.
  • sodium acid salt + citric acid = Disodium citrate.

Trisodium citrate is made from a high salt content product of the fermantation of molasses. It is then mixed with citric acid. the citric acid bonds with the salt to make a sodium citrate resin.

 


How is SODIUM CITRATE made?

Trisodium citrate is made by a water-immiscible organic extractant system is used to recover citric acid from molasses fermenter beer containing a high salt content by using a process combination of passing the aqueous raffinate from the citric acid extraction step through a basic anion-exchange resin to adsorb residual citric acid and release citrate anions from previously formed salt cation-citrate compounds. Trisodium citrate is then eluted from the resin by passing aqueous sodium hydroxide therethrough.
