PMP Liquid Gluconate 60 is a unique blend of gluconic acid and sodium gluconate in an aqueous solution, having a 60 percent equivalent of sodium gluconate when neutralized with caustic soda.

Description

Liquid Gluconate, which was developed by PMP Fermentation Products, Inc., is manufactured by a fermentation process yielding a versatile and popularly used gluconate. PMP Fermentation Products, Inc., offers several types of LG. These include both the standard product LG 60 (amber in color) to the LG 60 LT (a lighter version). Other strengths are available. Please contact us for more information.

General Characteristics

pH:
~3
Specific Gravity:
1.3

Standard Specifications

(FCC V)
Meet the specifications outlined in the Food Chemicals Codex.

Application:

Gluconates are important industrial chemicals because they employ the principles of sequestration and chelation under unique circumstances. While other compounds share these properties, gluconate is a superior sequestrant and remains stable even in high alkalinity and extremes of temperature.

Standard Packaging & Availability

PMP Liquid Gluconate 60, and 60-LT are packaged in 55 gallon, 600lb. plastic drums.

Storage & Handling:

PMP Liquid Gluconates do not crystallize even at temperatures below 32°F. However, it is recommended that storage temperature be kept at no lower than 15°F to avoid increase in viscosity. Gentle warming, with agitation, will restore solution. This product is a weak organic acid solution, so it is preferable to use stainless steel, or plastic and glass equipment when storing or handling. The use of aluminum, mild steel, and iron as equipment for materials of construction is not recommended.

Glucono Delta Lactone (GDL) | PMP Fermentation Products, Inc

As a natural food acid it contributes to the tangy flavor of various foods and since it lowers the pH it also helps preserve the food from deterioration by enzymes and microorganisms. GDL functions as a curing and pickling agent; leavening agent; pH control agent; and sequestrant. Glucono delta lactone is a carbohydrate that contains a lactone formation. It can be found in honey, fruit juices, wine and many fermented products.
