Malic Acid, powder, food grade.

Both malic and citric acids are used to acidulate other fruits (commercial wines can legally only add acids that occur naturally in any particular fruit).

This acid is found almost universally in temperate fruits. It dominates in apples and together with tartaric acid accounts for most of the acid in grapes. The main disadvantage of malic acid is that it buffers to a fairly high pH.

The form of commercially available malic acid added to wines is not subject to M-L fermentations.

Even small wineries needing acids might do well to consider buying malic, tartaric and citric acid in bulk if your usage requires. Not only is the price per ounce cheaper, but the shipping and handling per weight unit is much less. Our 50 pound bag of malic acid arrived in good condition, and we divided it up into empty widemouth gallon bottles we had from previous orders. kept tightly sealed, this stuff will keep for a long time. Just make sure you label your used containers so you remember what they contain!
