What is Malic Acid?

Malic acid is a dicarboxylic acid found in all living organisms. Naturally occurring in many fruits, it is known for its tart flavor and citrus taste. DL malic acid, colorless, odorless, and water-soluble, is widely used as an acidulant in various industries.

L-malic Acid vs. D-malic Acid vs. DL-malic Acid

  • L-malic acid occurs naturally, while D-malic acid is synthesized in the laboratory.
  • DL-malic acid is a racemic mixture of D-malic acid and L-malic acid.


Historical Significance

Isolated by the Swedish chemist Carl Wilhelm Scheele from apple juice in 1785, malic acid has been a staple in food and beverage production for centuries.

The Versatility of Malic Acid


Natural Bite, Sensory Enhancement

Malic acid's mellow, smooth, and persistent sourness enhances the sensory experience of various applications. It blends seamlessly with other food acids, sugars, sweeteners, flavors, and seasonings, delivering true-to-fruit flavor experiences.


Unique Flavor Modifier

Malic acid stands out among food acids as a strong flavor enhancer and blender. Its molecular conformation, especially at lower pH levels, allows it to associate with flavor compounds, delaying their transport through saliva and intensifying flavor perception.
