Notes:
Constit. of beet juice, pork fat, guava fruit (Psidium guajava), papaya (Carica papaya) and raspberry (Rubus idaeus). Food acidulant Adipic acid is a compound of the class of carboxylic acids that is derived from oxidation of various fats. It is a white crystalline powder appearing as an acid in aqueous circumstances, though it is not highly soluble (wikipedia); Adipic acid, like most carboxylic acids, is a mild skin irritant. It is mildly toxic, with LD50 of 3600 mg/kg for oral ingestion by rats.; By far the majority of the 2.5 billion kg of adipic acid produced annually is used as monomer for the production of nylon by a polycondensation reaction with hexamethylene diamine forming 6,6-nylon. Other major applications also involve polymers: it is a monomer for production of Polyurethane and its esters are plasticizers, especially in PVC.
