Calcium Lactate Gluconate, also known as calcium lactogluconate (CLG), is a product used for calcium fortification in food and beverages. CLG is a mixture of the commonly used calcium sources calcium lactate and calcium gluconate.
The characteristics of CLG, combining high solubility and neutral taste allow for applications in a wide range of products. CLG has the highest solubility of all commonly used calcium salts, which is the main functional advantage of this product.
CLG provides a neutral taste, even at high concentrations. This is especially important for food applications, where high calcium levels must be obtained without negative influence on taste properties of the fortified product.
