"Citric acid is a weak organic acid found in citrus fruits. It is a natural preservative and is also used to add an acidic (sour) taste to foods and soft drinks."

It's just fine, enjoy your hummus!

Might give you gas, but otherwise...
I'm assuming you're buying your hummous already made, so you might also try making your own - it's easy, would be cheaper, and no additives (even though citric acid is relatively benign). There are tons of hummous recipes on the net.

I like it on celery or carrots.

Agreed ^^ that it's a great dip for veggies. I also like to put it in a bowl over brown rice with a little bit of fresh diced tomato and a couple kalamata olives. Eat it with a spoon - yum!
