Stability and storage
Citric Acid Anhydrous may be stored for 36 months from the date of manufacture in the
Unopened original container. A relative humidity of 50% and a temperature range of 10-35
"C are the most suitable conditions for storage. Temperatures above 40 "C should be avoided in order to prevent caking, especially the Fine Granular. The stacking of the Fine Granular for long periods is not recommended. Stability tests have shown that citric acid anhydrous is chemically stable for at least five years in tightly closed containers under proper storage conditions.
As an acidulant, flavor enhancer and sequestering agent in processed food and beverages, and as a synergist in antioxidant mixtures. For pharmaceutical preparations, especially effervescent tablets. This product is not intended for use in the manufacture of sterile drug products. The purchaser assumes all responsibility for additional processing, testing, labeling and registration required for such use.
