Where is citric acid usually found in the grocery?
The location of citric acid in a grocery store depends on the area and store. However, it is usually located with items used for canning.
Citric Acid is not readily found in grocery stores anymore. You will need to contact specialty food stores or bakeries. You can also find food grade citric acid online at www.FennerChemical.com in the catalog sold in small or large quantities. Try your local health food store - I found it there and I live in a regional country town.
Citric acid is not "bad" because it is a weak acid. It is found in fruits, but having too much of it could cause trouble to your teeth long term but nothing serious. ------------------ Some people have skin reactions to Citric Acid containing products. Unless someone is fatally allergic to citric acid, it is not "bad"
The question is not quite clear. If it is meant to mean "Does citric acid cause vomiting?" The answer would usually be no. Citric acid is the acid found in citrus fruit, such as oranges and lemons. The acidity would not cause vomiting, as the stomach uses hydrochloric acid to digest food, and is able to cope with quite strong concentrations. The citric acid could cause vomiting if too much was consumed at once, but…
Well, I know the simple ones, Usually fruits such as oranges and lemons and limes have citric acid in them. The more sour the fruit is, the more citric acid there tends to be in it. So lemon and lime would have more citric acid in it (unless the orange is super, uper sour) Citric acid is what makes a fruit sour (if you havn't already gathered).
