    I think Calcium Citrate is a byproduct of making this acid, but don't think it can be combined to make it.

    I just googled it and it (Trisodium Citrate) does appear to be a "sour" salt in Citric acid, but don't see it in known processes to make it.

    I'd guess if you could remove it from the Citric acid to begin with then that would be what you needed to mix with it to make citric acid.

    It is not used in normal production, but it is a part of Citric Acid so I cannot help you. My knowledge of chemistry is old anyhow and I've forgotten more than I've learned.

    I'd be tempted to say you cannot get there from here.

    Good-luck.
