Chemical Description

  • Fumaric acid is an organic compound with the formula HO2CCH=CHCO2H.
  • These are colorless or white grains that occur widely in nature.
  • It has a fruit-like taste and has been used as a food additive.
  • Its E number is E297. The salts and esters are known as fumarates.
  • Fumaric acid is a versatile compound with a range of applications across different industries due to its chemical properties.
  • Fumaric acid is commonly used as an acidulant in food products. It adds a sour taste and helps maintain the pH of the food.
  • It helps in preserving food by inhibiting the growth of fungi and bacteria.
  • It is used in beverages, baking powders, and dessert mixes to enhance flavor.

  • Fumaric acid esters are used in the treatment of psoriasis and multiple sclerosis. Dimethyl fumarate, in particular, is used in the treatment of relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis.
  • It is sometimes included in nutritional supplements for its potential health benefits.
  • It is used in various cosmetic and personal care products to adjust and maintain the pH levels.
  • Some formulations use it for its skin conditioning properties.
  • Fumaric acid is used in the production of polyester resins and alkyd resins, which are used in paints, coatings, and adhesives.
  • It is used in the manufacture of plasticizers to improve the flexibility and durability of plastics.
  • It is added to animal feed as an acidifier to improve digestion and nutrient absorption in livestock.
