Citric  acid  was  first  isolated  from  lemon  juice   and crystallised  as  a  solid by Scheele in 1784.   It  is  found  as natural constituent of citrus fruits, pine apples, peaches,  figs and  other  fruits and tissues.  The citric acid  extracted  from these products is known as a"natural citric acid" in contrast  to "fermentation citric acid" lemons, limes and pine apples are  the principle  sources  of  natural citric acid,  which  is  produced chiefly  in  Italy, especially Sicily, and  also  in  California, Hawai and the West Indies.

It has made the United States self sufficient in respect to the citric acid supply and greatly changes the commerce of the world in citric acid and calcium citrate.

Recent developments in the citric acid fermentation include the change from the older established shallow   pan method to a deep tank submerged method. 

A  group  headed  by S.M. Martin of  the  National  Research laboratory   of  Canada  has  been  especially  active   in   the development  of  the  submerged production of  citric  acid  from ferrocyanide-treated beet molasses by Aspergillus Niger.

In  Russia, Imshenetskiietal through the use of  ultraviolet radiation, obtained an A. Niger mutant that produced 16-22%  more citric  acid  than  parent strain, which is  used  in  Commercial production  of this product.   The mutant strain produced  25-30% less  mycellium  than  the parents yet it  consumed  26-51%  more sucrose per gram of dry mycellium.  The yield of citric acid from the sugar consumed varied form 57-74%.
