Ingredient Description

Calcium lactate gluconate (CLG) is a mixture of calcium lactate and calcium gluconate. In pharmaceuticals, it is widely used as a pharmaceutical calcium source with excellent bioavailability. In food and beverages, the outstanding characteristics of calcium lactate gluconate combining high solubility and neutral taste lead to new applications in a wide range of premium products. Calcium lactate gluconate is a white, crystalline, odourless, tasteless powder. It is non-toxic and has physiologically excellent compatibility. Calcium lactate gluconate displays high bioavailability, neutral taste and is highly soluble. It is used as a premium calcium source in pharmaceuticals. Scientific reviews of human studies revealed that calcium lactate gluconate was both significantly and more consistently able to increase bone mineral density than other calcium salts. In food, it is particularly found in beverages and other applications where solubility is a sensitive matter, e.g. clear beverages and concentrated or instant preparations as well as for processing at low temperatures and in line blending. Calcium lactate gluconate shows the highest solubility among the calcium salts commonly used for mineral enrichment, with a initial solubility of 20-40%.
