Malic acid is a kind of fruit acid. Malic acid, which is naturally found in many fruits and vegetables, is an organic compound. It is generally found in immature fruits. Malic acid is found in most apples. Malic acid is the reason for the pleasant and refreshing taste that apple leaves in the mouth when bitten. It is one of the basic components of cell metabolism in the human body. Malic acid, which has a flowing and lasting aroma, is widely used in beverages and confectionery. Malic acid is also a useful compound for health reasons. In addition to energy production, malic acid takes the fatigue of muscles, lowers the poisoning effect of some metals, strengthens the immune system, ensures the smooth functioning of the heart and gives firmness to the skin.

Malic acid is also called apple acid. There is no daily limit to the intake of malic acid. When administered to animals, malic acid stabilizes the acid content of the rumen and increases the feed intake of the animals. Cattle, for example, 350 grams of 35 grams of malic acid are recommended.

Malic acid can easily adapt to different flavoring agents. In addition, because it leaves a lasting taste on the palate and is easily soluble, it is widely used in the beverage industry. One purpose of malic acid is to extend the shelf life of these products. In order to achieve controlled pH value in canned foods and to prevent browning time, to reduce sediment formation in dairy products and beer production, to increase the brightness and clarity in hard sugar production and to strengthen the effect of sweeteners in dietary products for preservative purposes in the food sector and in beverages and concentrate beverages other than beverages. malic acid is used to reduce the effect on the palate.

Malic acid is determined in authorized laboratories within the scope of chemical tests. These studies comply with the standards published by national and international organizations and test methods accepted worldwide.
