I agree with you. I just wanted to point out they aren't synthetically made.

Those are two separate statements. They are not dangerous. They are naturally occurring. Naturally occurring does not equate to being safe.

They are not dangerous and they are all naturally occurring.

Usually the citric acid and fumaric acid are used together in a specific ratio to get a certain sour profile. I believe tartaric acid is a byproduct of the wine making industry and gives a tart taste (hence, tartaric acid?). I believe it also helps prevent spoilage, to some degree.

On a side note, if you ever see some crystals on a wine cork after you open it up, those are tartaric acid salts. Cream of tartar is also a derivative.
