Urinary stone is one of the oldest and the most common afflictions in humans, animals and birds. A number of people suffer from urinary stones. Brushite or calcium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate (CHPD) crystals are frequently found in urinary stones. Many fruits contain high amount of tartaric acid. Therefore, the effect of tartaric acid on the growth of CHPD crystals is presented in this article. Moreover, tamarind is widely used in Indian cooking, and contains high amount of tartaric acid.
