CitroBio is a citrus extract wash for use throughout the entire food industry. It has been professionally tested, is completely biodegradable, and soluble in water, oils, and waxes. It doesn't change the color or flavor of food, but gives a better quality and appearance, no rinsing is necessary. CitroBio liquid formulas act by destroying the cellular membrane of the micro-organism. Its effectiveness is due to synergetic action created by reaction of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) with the natural acids.
