Global Fumaric acid market: Overview

Fumaric acid also known as trans-butene diotic acid which is a chemical compound whose formula is HO2CCH=CHCO2H and molecular weight 116.072 g/mol, since it has a sour taste and is odorless and colorless crystalline solid it is used in bakery products . It is dicarboxylic acid which is a precursor to L-malate in the Krebs tricarboxylic acid cycle. It is formed by the oxidation of succinic acid by succinate dehydrogenase. Fumaric acid is the strongest tasting food acidulants that control the growth of microorganisms, it adjusts pH and enhances flavor. Greater buffering capacity among other benefits offers high opportunity for industrial application in the market. It produces complex molecules of organic acids in mammals and found in plant life. Fumaric acid originates in bolete mushrooms, Iceland moss, and lichens. It is regarded as a non-toxic and a non-irritant material and hence used in pharmaceutical products.
