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.
