During the manufacture of P fertilisers by acidulation of phosphate rocks, the gaseous F compounds released are removed by scrubbing with water and the resulting scrubber liquor is then often used in the fertiliser manufacturing process (acid dilution and fertiliser granulation).

Granmag is a fertiliser made by 20% acidulation of finely divided calmag with [H.sub.2][SO.sub.4], thereby increasing the water solubility of a portion of the fertiliser Mg and producing a granular material more suitable for blending with other fertilisers and for aerial application (Loganathan et al.

Chaptalization and acidulation: Corrections of deficiencies in musts (sugar in France and tartaric acid in the U.S.) have been so commonplace for hundreds of years that most traditionalists forget that the Bordeaux First Growths really should sport a "contains beet sugar" ingredient label for most vintages.
It's definitely oxidation, and he could prevent it, he thinks, with enough acidulation, maybe some ascorbic acid, and keeping the temperature down all through processing and aging.
There have been dry years that produced high pH grapes and required some acidulation, and others where the pH was fine but difficulty in ripening fruit meant chaptalization was needed.
Stephen Smith, the owner, said that in his experience, Viognier loses acid and gains pH, especially after undergoing malolactic, but it responds well to acidulation.
