Our Calcium Lactate is a premium quality product and 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 used to coat fresh fruit and cantaloupes to keep them firm and extend the shelf life. Calcium Lactate is typically bought together with Sodium Alginate.
It's a white non-hygroscopic salt and is a recommended source of calcium. It provides calcium salts in a soluble form to react with Alginate, Gellan or certain kinds of Carrageenan which permit gel formation without heating. Its taste is more discreet than Calcium Chloride (salty and sometimes bitter).
Calcium Lactate is recommended for all reactions of inverse spherification and reacts where Alginate and Calcium sources are intimately mixed when in a diffuse setting or full contact gelling. Calcium Lactate also works well in the production of drops, Caviar pearls and all shapes of spaghetti by immersion of an Alginate solution in a Calcium setting bath.
