TheDailyMeal.com: Things You Didn’t Know Were in Bottled Juice

Citric Acid

Science Daily reports that "Citric acid is a weak organic acid found in citrus fruits. It is a natural preservative and is also used to add an acidic (sour) taste to foods and soft drinks." The ingredient is found in many drinks, including many juices that require a tartness or a citrusy flavor. While there aren’t any real health risks associated with citric acid, mass consumption of any kind of acidic ingredients can lead to ulcers, heartburn, and indigestion.
