Citribel is the only circular producer of citric acid, citrates, and other high-value products through natural surface fermentation of sugar molasses.
Molasses, the sidestreams from sugar refineries, make up the primary raw material for our unique natural production process. The molasses serve as the breeding ground for our Citribel fungus. The fungus creates citric acid and mycelium in the fermentation process. Citrates and other components are produced during further downstream processing, such as Nutribond (low potassium vinasse), potassium-calcium salt and gypsum.
Our product are used on large scale within the food, pharma, feed, agrocultural sector and in other niche applications.
