Is citric acid from tomatoes ok? I talked to the manager of the local pizza place where I live and they get their sauce from a company. He said the citric acid on the label is from tomatoes, but he he not sure. He is going to e-mail the company for me.

He said the label read "naturally derived citric acid". I don't think that makes a difference but I figured I would tell you guys anyway.

Most citric acid is made by fermenting corn, so there are glutamate residues...that is why many of us react to citric acid.

I had a can of organic tomatoes that listed the ingredents as "tomatoes and naturally derived citric acid." I called the 800 number and asked the customer service person about the citric acid and she said "I'm sure it is from tomatoes" I asked if she could please find out for sure and sure enough, it was from corn. You can't take anything for granted.

My cortisone nasal spray contains citric acid, is it safe to use, I always have a reaction to citric acid in foods as I am also allergic to corn, any idea? Thank you

If you react to citric acid in foods, you very well may react to it in the nasal spray, although perhaps not to the same degree. Have you used it yet?
