User: What is an organic compound?

Weegy: Acids occurring naturally in foods that contain, as do all organic compounds, carbon; e.g. acetic, citric, fumaric, lactic, malic acids. [ As distinct from the inorganic (mineral) acids such as hydrochloric and sulphuric acids, they can be metabolized in the body to provide 10.3-15?kJ (2.4-3.6?kcal)/g for the various acids; for labelling purposes a value of 8?kJ (2?kcal)/g is used for all organic acids. ]
