Delivering a zesty, sharp, and tangy taste to food products.

Our Acidulant Products

Commonly used as food additives to add a sour taste to processed foods and beverages, acidulants can also adjust pH levels and enhance the sweetness and flavor of sugar. They even perform a leavening function and maintain gel formation in baked goods. However, to add the perfect taste, acidulants should be high quality. At United Foods we understand the importance of supplying only the highest-quality ingredients and offer premium acidulant products for our customers. Whether you are looking for an antioxidant, for a useful preservative, or to add a zesty taste to your products, we have the perfect acidulant available for your needs.

Some of our available antioxidant ingredients are listed below.

Ascorbic Acid

This acid is a glucose compound found naturally in citrus fruits and many different vegetables, with vitamin C as its biologically active form.

Citric Acid

This weak organic acid is found naturally in fruits and vegetables and used as a natural preservative to add an acidic taste to foods and soft drinks.
