Calcium Lactate, CAS# 814-80-2, is a black or white crystalline salt manufactured through chemical synthesis of lactic acid with calcium carbonate or calcium hydroxide, available as White powder and White granular. Calcium Lactate is widely used as acidity regulator. It is affirmed by US FDA as GRAS(generally recognized as safe) and widely accepted as safe food additive in many countries with E number E327.
No significant side effects reported.
As Calcium Lactate is widely known as safe, there is no limit on dosage of intake. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of Calcium Lactate for long period.
Special groups refer to newborns, children, pregnant and any other applicable vulnerable groups.
There is no evidence that Calcium Lactate could have any negative effects on these vulnerable groups. It should be safe to use Calcium Lactate in food for newborns and pregnant. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of Calcium Lactate for long period in food for newborns or pregnant.
Generally recognized as safe(GRAS) is a FDA designation that a specific substance or ingredient is generally considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements.
