Clinical Significance

Tartaric Acid occurs naturally in grapes and is one of the most prevalent organic acids, along with L-Malic acid, present in wine. Its concentration is decisive in the definition of the acidity of wines and therefore affecting wine characteristics such as odour, colour and flavor. The determination of tartaric acid is also of interest in stability studies, since it forms complexes with potassium and calcium and the resulting precipitate causes undesirable deposits in the bottle.
