Potassium lactate (CAS 85895-78-9) 25kg MasterChem
Potassium L(+)-lactate is the potassium salt of L(+)-lactic acid, obtained by neutralisation of the acid of natural origin with a high purity potassium source. Lactate is produced naturally by living organisms as a by-product of the glycolysis. Potassium L(+)-lactate is used in food as a sodium free pathogen control agent and humectant. As an alternative to sodium lactate, it addresses the concerns of health organisations and consumers about reducing sodium intake.
