I'm not sure, but a few things come to mind. Citric acid is sometimes derived from citrus fruits. I'd also watch out for fruit pectin if you are avoiding citrus.

I guess rice could be hidden in "starch" if they don't specify what kind of starch it is... But I wouldn't assume rice starch.

Along with rice starch, many foods are sweetened with brown rice syrup, and in make up and hair products you might see oryzanols and sitosterol, which are rice derivatives.
