Special Salts

Jungbunzlauer Special Salts are high-quality and highly bioavailable organic mineral salts derived from citric acid or gluconic acid.

Our calcium, magnesium, potassium or zinc sources are mainly used for mineral enrichment in food, beverages, dietetic as well as pharmaceutical products due to their superior technological and nutritional properties. Additionally, tricalcium citrate and tripotassium citrate serve as sodium-free additives for pH and acidity regulation purposes. Monosodium citrate is applied as low-water-content alternatives in applications where an excess of water would lead to undesired reactions, e.g. in dry blends and effervescent tablets.


Special Citrates

CITROMA® / CITRATE MA (US)

CITROMA®, a special sodium citrate, shows the ability to reduce the acrylamide formation in various processed food products. more

Monosodium Citrate

Monosodium citrate is a monobasic salt with multiple functions used in diverse industries. more

Tricalcium Citrate

Tricalcium citrate is the most commonly used calcium salt of citric acid. Due to its bioavailability it tricalcium citrate is preferred over inorganic calcium sources. more

Trimagnesium Citrate

Trimagnesium citrate is mainly used as mineral source in food supplements, foods for particular nutritional purposes, and pharmaceutical preparations. more

Tripotassium Citrate

Tripotassium citrate is used as buffering, sequestering or emulsifying agent. It usually replaces trisodium citrate whenever a low sodium content is desired. more

Zinc Citrate

This organic mineral source is mainly used in dental care products, but applications in food supplements, functional foods and beverages are increasing.  more

Special Gluconates

Calcium Lactate Gluconate

This mixture of calcium lactate and calcium gluconate is widely used in pharmaceuticals, food and beverages as calcium source with outstanding characteristics. more

Potassium Gluconate

Potassium gluconate, the potassium salt of gluconic acid, serves as potassium source in food and pharmaceutical products. more
