Flavor Enhancer, Cognitive Health, Detoxification, Energy & Focus, Oral Health, Sports & Performance Nutrition
L-Malic Acid is the natural isomeric (L) form of Malic Acid which is permitted for use in Organic Certified products (per USDA NOP). Unlike the more commonly used DL- Malic Acid which is a synthesized mixture of the naturally occurring and synthetic isomeric forms, NuMalic® L-Malic Acid is manufactured using an enzymatic fermentation process (not by chemical synthesis) and is nature-identical. NuMalic® L-Malic Acid is a Non-GMO Project Verified & Organic Compliant flavor enhancer option for use in a variety of food, confectionery and beverage applications.
