Citric acid is a natural, weak organic acid that is found in many fruits and vegetables, especially citrus fruits, hence their name. Because citric acid is also a byproduct of the citric acid cycle, it is also produced by many living organisms, including mold.
Foods naturally containing citric acid include citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges and limes, according to a February 2015 study published by International Journal of Basic & Applied Sciences. Berries, except for blueberries, also contain citric acid, particularly strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries and cranberries.
Citric acid is an organic acid found in citric fruits, but it's commonly used as a preservative in packaged foods and drinks, including hummus, wine, and salsa.
