Our calcium lactate is a premium quality. Calcium lactate is an
extract of lactic acid. It works well in the production of
caviar, pearls, spaghetti and spheres using spherification
techniques. Calcium Lactate can also be put on fresh fruit and
cantaloupes to keep them firm and extend shelf life. It’s a white
non hygroscopic salt. It is a recommended as a source of calcium.
Calcium lactate provides calcium salts in a soluble form to react
with alginate, gellan or certain kinds of carrageenan permitting
gel formation without heating. It’s taste is more discreet than
calcium chloride (salty and sometimes bitter / metallic).
Solubility limits : 9g per 100 ml. Calcium lactate is recommended
in all reactions of inverse spherification and reactions where
alginate and calcium source are intimately mixed such as in
diffuse setting or full contact gelling. Calcium lactate also
works well in the production of drops, pearls and all shapes of
spaghetti by immersion of alginate solution in a calcium setting
bath. Use from 1 to 9% calcium lactate to provide calcium ions in
setting bathss for hydrocolloids that react with calcium ions
(sodium alginate, gellan, pectin, caragennenans such as iota or
kappa). Storage Instructions: Cool, Dry and Dark conditions.
Vegan, Vegetarian & Halal friendly. Shelf life of 1 year.
100% PURE CALCIUM LACTATE POWDER
Use from 1 to 9% Calcium Lactate to provide calcium ions in a
setting bath for hydrocolloids that reacts with calcium ions such
as Sodium Alginate, Gellan Gum, Carrageenenan Iota, Carrageenenan
Kappa and Pectin. This type is recommended for all applications
where calcium salt will be readily mixed to other ingredients and
eaten (diffusion setting, blending alginate with calcium rich
solutions). It is used at 1% for these applications. Can be used
as a source of calcium fortification
