Abstract—Citric acid is a 6-Carbon containing tricarboxylic acid which was first isolated from lemon juice and was crystallized by Scheele in 1784. It is responsible for the tart taste of various fruits, e.g., lemons, limes, oranges, pineapples, pears and gooseberries. In the present study more focus was made on the economical production of citric acid from Artocarpus heterophyllus and its peel, which was in turn compared with a citric acid production rate from sucrose as a substrate. Aspergillus niger MTCC 281 is the choice of the organism for the present study. Jack fruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus) is a seasonal fruit and its peel will be dumped indiscriminately after using the edible portion. So, this waste is considered for the present study as a substrate for citric acid production. In the second part of the work alcohols were also used at the time of inoculums to check the role of alcohol in the production rate. Three different alcohols were used, i.e., methanol, ethanol and butanol at different concentrations. 

Index Terms—citric acid, artocarpus heterophyllus, peel, stimulants, substrate, methanol, ethanol and butanol
