More information about CITROCOAT® N:

General information

CITROCOAT® N is the Jungbunzlauer tradename for citric acid with a monosodium citrate coating. Compared to regular citric acid, CITROCOAT® N is less hygroscopic and less reactive with other ingredients in crystalline form. Various powdered applications, in particular effervescent formulations, which are sensitive to humidity can benefit from these outstanding properties. CITROCOAT® N provides superior stability in food applications like instant drinks, healthcare products or confectionery where premature reactions must be avoided. Also technical applications like powders and tabs for laundry and detergent applications benefit from the stabilising properties of CITROCOAT® N during storage.


CITROCOAT® N is a white granular or fine crystalline powder. Specification is available on request.

CITROCOAT® N is supplied in 25 kg multilayer paper bags or in 1000 kg big bags.
