Tartaric Acid, Granular is used as an antioxidant, acidifier, flavour enhancer, stabilizer and sequestering agent. It is a white crystalline, diprotic sugar acid that occurs in many plants in a natural form and acts as a leavening agent when mixed with baking soda. Used as an antioxidant, it is one of the principal acids that are found in wine and is used in the industrial sector as a chelating agent.
