Citric Acid Is Actually Made From GMO Black Mold

Mass produced citric acid and ascorbic acid or vitamin C, have had hidden GMO ingredients since the early 1900s, as the black mold Aspergillus niger has been used to ferment starches to derive citric acid.

Citric acid is often praised for its ability to to bring out the pucker-inducing and tangy tastes in popular foods. It is increasingly celebrated for helping to bring a balance of “all five flavors” to countless restaurant dishes and prepackaged processed foods – indispensable to even celebrity and TV contestant chefs.

What they don’t tell you is that citric acid is known to cause physical symptoms in people that are rather unpleasant. Those who experience allergic reactions and who have food intolerance’s to citric acid have symptoms such as stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting, cramping and hives.

Food manufacturers leave out that citric acid is derived from genetically modified black mold grown on GMO corn syrup. The USDA and the FDA still allow it to be used despite it being a known hidden GMO. Companies continuously capitalize on an ignorance based market.

Citric acid and ascorbic acid are both known accomplices to the creation of benzene, a human carcinogen, inside food and drink products alongside sodium benzoate. Studies proved that the creation of benzene could happen right inside the drink containers, while in transport, on store shelves or waiting for consumption in consumers’ homes. However, the FDA still allows them to continue using this dangerous mixture of ingredients, despite clear data on the matter.

Citric acid is found in virtually all manufactured foods because it’s a flavor enhancer and preservative. It is even found in organic foods, which is why it is so important to read the ingredients in the products you buy and be knowledgeable about how the ingredients are created.

Many people are under the impression that the citric acid in today’s food come from fruit. Citric acid does in fact occur naturally in citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, grapefruits in significant quantities, it is even present in most living things. But the industry would find it simply too costly to derive their preservative ingredient that way.

Are you still consuming these dangerous ingredients? And if you are is knowing how it’s made and what effects it could have on you enough to bring about a change and deter you from indulging? I personally am shocked with this insight and will be a lot more picky when I am at the store shopping!

Hello Hailey!
Yes! I am willing to refrain from indulging. This information is very enlightening! I am shocked to learn HOW citric acid/ascorbic acid is created. It’s actually sickening to discover that its made from mold grown on GMO corn of all things! Citric acid/ascorbic acid is as ubiquitous as its source. Further incentive to continue on my whole food, plant based way of eating. Thanks for bringing this information to light!

The only thing in this article is a series of baseless assertions without anything to back them up and without any evidence even remotely in favor of them by any credible source. Let’s use Hitchen’s Razor, that which can be presented without evidence can be dismissed without evidence. Also lets use Occam’s Razor, it requires far more assumptions to believe that the entire scientific community, as well as real nutritionists, and government organizations are all lying about citric acid, rather than knowing that it comes from citrus fruits. This is utterly disingenuous and requires a large amount of mental acrobatics… Read more »

Dude Its really good to do your own research and I encourage it… including when you decide to comment like a 3rd grader and make an a** out of your self before looking it up yourself.

Here, i’ll spoon feed you: aspergillus-niger is a black fungus
aspergillus-niger is used to make all kinds of things because of their efficient ability to turn all kinds of sugars into a waste/product called Ascorbic acid.

Here is the FDA article on Sec. 173.280 Solvent extraction process for citric acid. and aspergillus-niger and the FDA allowances.

Thank you for sharing some sources. With so much info out there and so many people saying things that are entirely baseless I appreciate it a lot. I have recently developed a reaction to Vitamin C that previously I only had to black mold so this makes a lot of sense.

Its true. Mold citric acid is real. Yes, the writer didnt include ” proof” but it is true. Google MCA manufactured citric acid, discovered around 1919, before 1919 Italians held monopoly on NATURAL citric acid made from lemons. Also, I googled ” buy natural citric acid from lemons” guess what I found? Zip.
Even the Organic brands don’t list their source. Actually one ” organic, non GM” page, listed the source as non GM corn. I googled that too, on further reasearch, the main source is intact black mold : Aspergillus Niger, that is grown on corn syrup. Yum.

If you’ve done research on the FDA you know they are as sinister as crooks! The way they dance around rules to approve medical as well as food products is criminal. YouTube has several documentaries expose how corrupt the government organization has become and it’s all about the all mighty dollar, screw the customer. Just like how they demonized Ivermectin if used in early stages of covid could have saved as many as 500,000 lives. They told us you’re not a horse not a cow stop using it. The only reason was if there was an alternative to the vaccine,… Read more »

This turns my stomach. Thankyou for sharing. Ive been researching natural dish rinse aids for a dishwasher and citric acid is the most popular diy. So down the rabbit hole I go. I made a test batch with the,acid and water. It went mouldy after a week on the bench top in an unsealed jar ( I wanted to see if if was safe in dishwasher so did this experiment). Then I discovered the truth on further research, when I googled ” mold citric acid” I will throw my citric acid away. This is so disgusting. How will they know?.… Read more »
