‘Sour’ additives & acid ressources? https://ift.tt/3ddu7PQ

Hi, So I'm fairly new, but I'm working on compiling some information specifically on the 'sour' taste in e-liquids. I know that information is sparse, both because it's fairly recent and because it's almost impossible to get that 'sour' flavor in vapor – but it IS possible! 🙂

Atm, I'm especially looking for ressources on 'ready-to-mix' dilutions of acids for e-liquid, as it's pretty hard to dig up specific ingredients in brand additives..

Would also appreciate any links/experience regarding use and safety of any of these or others!


So far, the commercial acids I've found (for e-liquid) is:

-Malic Acid- (TFA, FW, many others) Most common for 'sour' effect. Best as enhancer, doesn't translate well on its own. Safety concerns regarding inhalation found

-Lactic Acid- (CAP Powerful) Haven't found much on this on its own. Used by CAP along with Citric Acid. safety concerns unknown

-Citric Acid- (CAP Powerful, nudenicotine) Used as enhancer. Better for 'fruity' mixes. Easily mutes flavors if not careful. Safety concerns regarding inhalation found

-Tartaric Acid- (nude nicotine) Used to 'mask' sweetness. Can quickly mute flavors. Safety concerns unknown

-Ascorbic Acid- (nudenicotine) Only inorganic acid on list. Used in cola. Have only found anecdotal accounts of use – seems like the best option for 'Sour' sensation. Safety concerns unknown


My list of 'food grade' acids as of now. I lack research on a large amount of these: – Citric Acid – Lactic Acid – Malic Acid – Tartaric Acid – Fumaric Acid – Ascorbic Acid – Acetic Acid – Oxalic Acid – Tannic Acid – Caffeotannic Acid – Benzoic Acid – Butyric Acid

//Inorganic Acids// – Phosphoric Acid – Trisodium Citrate

//Non-acids// – Vinegar – Lemon Juice
