The natural source of succinic acid is amber, which is a resin of
the genus Pinus, buried for a long time in the ground, and it is
also widely present in various tissues of plants and animals.
Saponin succinate resin, buried in the ground for years to become
amber, amber contains 7.8% of this product.
Succinic acid has been recognized by the US FDA as GRAS (Generally
Recognized as Safe), which allows it to be used for a variety of
purposes. It is an intermediate product of the tricarboxylic acid
cycle (TCA) and is also one of the fermentation products of
anaerobic metabolism. Succinic acid is widely used in industries
such as pesticides, dyes, spices, paints, foods, plastics, etc. It
can also be used as a C4 platform compound.
