/ 1 MT

Hydrochloric Acid is a functional ingredient made from an aqueous solution of hydrogen chloride gas. Dilute Hydrochloric Acid occurs naturally in the gastric juices of humans and other mammals and is responsible for good digestion. It is also obtained synthetically. It is formed by the reaction of sulfuric acid and sodium chloride, the combustion of hydrogen into chlorine, and is also a by-product of the chlorination of various organic compounds. The latter method of extraction is most commonly used in industry. Hydrochloric Acid can be used in many industries as a pH and acidity regulator or as a surfactant with cleaning properties. As a food additive, it has the symbol E507.
