Industrial applications

Home and personal care

The production of perfumes is one of the main uses of phosphoric acid in the home and personal care industry.


Food grade phosphoric acid is used as an acidulant and flavouring agent in the carbonated beverage industry. Its taste complements the cola flavour in carbonated beverages. It can be added to fats and oils as an emulsifier and to aid the control of fatty peroxides. In addition, it is used as a degumming agent while refining vegetable oil and sugar. Phosphoric acid also acts as an acidulant for baking powders and emulsifying salts in the production of processed cheese.
