General information

Magnesium lactate dihydrate is produced by complete neutralisation of lactic acid with a high purity magnesium source and subsequent crystallisation. Magnesium lactate is mainly used as mineral source in food and beverages, food supplements, foods for particular nutritional purposes, and pharmaceutical preparations. Due to its neutral taste and high solubility, it is the magnesium salt of choice for mineral fortified liquid applications. As an organic mineral, it is preferred over inorganic sources because of its superior bioavailability and physiological compatibility. 

Magnesium lactate is supplied as a white or almost white crystalline powder. It has a neutral taste, is practically odourless and has a good solubility in water (84 g/l).


Jungbunzlauer magnesium lactate is supplied in accordance with the requirements of the the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC) and of the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.), always in their latest versions.
