You can buy citric acid at most homebrew shops for winemaking. It is OK.

Yep, citric acid is fine. It's all part of the way things are advertised, 100% juice actually means 100% with things added to it.

Good on your for asking, but you should be fine. Most people actually prefer juice from concentrate as opposed to it being fresh squeezed.

Cheers!
