Calcium lactate pentahydrate

Excluding Sales Tax

Calcium lactate is a carboxylate salt of lactic acid and calcium.There are many calcium compounds on the market today. However, many of them contain calcium carbonate, sulfate, nitrate, phosphate, oxalate, citrate, and/or chloride, some of which are either acidic in solution or are hard to work with. Calcium lactate pentahydrate is a viable organic alternative to calcium chloride or carbonate. It is considered a non-toxic, odorless, non-hazardous, and user-friendly salt of calcium and lactic acid. Lactic acid is a versatile alpha-hydroxy acid with a carboxylate and hydroxyl groups while calcium ions are important to human health, especially bone health [Orchard T. S., Am. J. Clin. Nutri., 2014, 99(4), 926-933]. The versatile chemical composition is utilized in textile, cosmetic, and agricultural applications. Exemplary uses include:
•    shelf-life preservation
•    tissue-reinforcement in various processed agricultural products.
•    texturing agent 
•    antimicrobial preservative
