Malic Acid is an organic chemical compound that occurs in every living organism. It is also found in fruits and is responsible for their sour taste. The word ‘malic’ in its name is derived from a Latin word meaning ‘apple’, as it is found mainly in apples. Malic Acid can also be obtained synthetically – on an industrial scale it is produced by the double hydration of maleic anhydride. As a food additive, it is an antioxidant or acidulant known as E296.
Malic Acid comes in the form of a white crystalline solid. It is practically odorless, but has a sour taste. Malic Acid is highly soluble in water, acetone and ethanol. Due to its properties, it can be used as a preservative, acidity regulator, color stabilizer and flavor enhancer.
The shelf life of Malic Acid is two years.
