You can get citric acid from many places. some easy places to get citric acid is from oranges, lemons, limes, and tangerines. these are all not pure citric acid. you can probably get pure citric acid in the drug store or some science stores i think.


Hope this helped
P.S what do you need it for?

Pure?

From Chemical companies. Type in "Citric acid manufacturer" into your favorite search engine

At the drugstore. It'll be in little brown bottles marked "Vitamin C".

Also, your Caps Lock key seems to be stuck.

I stand corrected. In that case, the supermarket spice aisle in little jars labeled "sour salt" or "lemon salt".

The comment about the Caps Lock key stands.

I bet you don't even have local impact.....

Yet again, it depends where you are in the world. In the UK, you get it at "home brewing" shops and some supermarkets.

I had a very hard time finding it to make candy:  Go to a bulk supply store that sells candymaking supplies (like flavours etc...)

In Canada I went to "Nutters" and they had it in bulk, about 4 dollars/kilogram.
