Malic acid contributes to the sourness of green apples. Malic acid is present in grapes. It confers a tart taste to wine, although the amount decreases with increasing fruit ripeness. The process of malolactic fermentation converts malic acid to much milder lactic acid.
Malic acid, when added to food products, is denoted by E number E296. Malic acid is the source of extreme tartness in USA produced confectionary; the so-called "extreme candy". It is also used with or in place of the less sour citric acid in sour sweets and Salt & Vinegar flavor potato chips. These sweets are sometimes labeled with a warning that excessive consumption can cause irritation of the mouth.
