Tartaric acid comes from plants like grapes and bananas, so yes it is better, or we shoud say, not as unhealthy for you as phosphoric acid.  However, the way the tartaric acid is processed will determine whether it is beneficial or not.  Of course, it is acidic, which can effect pH balance.  It is important that you eat enough alkaline foods to counterbalance the acid foods you take in every day.  Remember, the optimal balance of alkaline foods to acid foods each day is 80% alkaline to 20% acid.  To learn more, take the free Alkaline Food Test.
