Calcium Lactate Powder
Calcium lactate is produced by mixing lactic acid with calcium carbonate or calcium hydroxide. It has high solubility and dissolving speed, high bioavailability, good taste. It’s a good source of calcium used widely in food & beverage, health products, pharmaceuticals and other fields.

Food & Beverage, Pharmaceuticals, Nutrition Health, Other industries
In medicine, calcium lactate is commonly used as an antacid and treat calcium deficiencies. Comparing with other calcium salts, calcium lactate has advantages of high solubility and easier absorption, which can be absorbed at various pHs. It also has a good taste comparing with other calcium salts which have more bitter taste.
Calcium lactate is applied in the food industry as firming agent, thickener, flavor enhancer or leavening agent. As acidity regulator, it is used to make cheese. For baking soda( baking powder), calcium lactate is a buffer and is a constituent of it. Also it's commonly used as a calcium fortifier in food like beverages and supplements.
As a preservative, added to fresh-cut fruits such as cantaloupes, it does keep foods firm and extend the shelf life, without the bitter taste caused by calcium chloride.
Calcium lactate is used to sugar-free foods to prevent tooth from decaying. When added to chewing gum containing xylitol, it increases the remineralization of tooth enamel.
It's also used in dentifrices to avoid the loss of tooth enamel and remove tartar from tooth surface.
