Tartaric acid is a carboxylic acid which is naturally occuring and usually found in grapes. It can be synthetically produced from manic anhydride. Acids are used as additives in wine to create emulsifiers, as a buffer, as a flavouring agent and as a preservative in foods and beverages. Tartaric acid can be made from both natural and synthetic sources. Natural resources can also produce grapes and dried raisins from the residue left behind after wine production. Tartaric acid is a crystalline dicarboxylic acid found naturally in various fruits such as grapes, bananas, and tamarind. It is also known as dihydroxybutane dioic acid. It is one of the plant acids and has multiple industrial uses. It is also known as wine fermentation by-products, salt, potassium bitrate, and cream of tartar. Tartaric acid is colourless and soluble in water. It is commonly used in jelly, carbonated drinks, and gelatin desserts. It is also used for various industrial applications such as photographic printing, calico printing, metal cleaning, polishing, and various other resources.
