Organic mineral salts for mineral fortification
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.
Monosodium citrate is a monobasic salt with multiple functions used in diverse industries.
Monomagnesium citrate is the monobasic magnesium salt of citric acid and is mainly used as magnesium source in functional food and beverages.
Trimagnesium citrate is mainly used as mineral source in food supplements, foods for particular nutritional purposes, and pharmaceutical preparations.
Tricalcium citrate is the most commonly used calcium salt of citric acid. Due to its high bioavailability, it is preferred over inorganic calcium sources.
Tripotassium citrate is used as buffering, sequestering or emulsifying agent. It usually replaces trisodium citrate whenever a low sodium content is desired.
This organic mineral source is mainly used in dental care products, but applications in food supplements, functional foods and beverages are increasing.
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.
Potassium gluconate, the potassium salt of gluconic acid, serves as potassium source in food and pharmaceutical products.
Zinc Gluconate is the most common used organic zinc source in food supplements, functional foods and beverages.
Magnesium lactate, the magnesium salt of lactic acid, is mainly used in beverages and sports nutrition drinks for magnesium fortification.
Zinc lactate, the zinc salt of lactic acid is mainly used in dental care products like toothpaste or mouthwash and as a zinc source in food and beverage products.
