Sodium gluconate is sodium salt of gluconic acid that is produced by the fermentation of glucose. PMP Sodium gluconate comes in a fine granular or powdered form. It is soluble in water, non corrosive, non toxic, biodegradable and biorenewable.


PMP Sodium Gluconate Granular F.C.C.
PMP Sodium Gluconate F.C.C. is a high quality crystalline sodium salt of gluconic acid. It appears as white crystals that exhibit excellent solubility. This non-corrosive, non-toxic and highly pure gluconate is an excellent choice when dry material is preferred. Bulk density is approximately 59 pounds per cubic foot (0.95 g/cc).


PMP Sodium Gluconate Powder
A fine particle mix of sodium gluconate for use in special industrial applications (e.g. dry powdered chemical mixes and liquid suspensions). Bulk density is approximately 44 pounds per cubic foot (0.70 g/cc).

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.


S-45 | PMP Fermentation Products, Inc

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


Gluconic Acid | PMP Fermentation Products, Inc

PMP Gluconic Acid 50%, Technical is a 50% aqueous solution of hydroxycarboxylic acid, which is composed of an equilibrium mixture of gluconic acid and the gamma and delta lactones. It is recommended that material of construction and handling be stainless steel, rubber lined steel, epoxy resin coated steel, plastic or glass.


Liquid Gluconate | PMP Fermentation Products, Inc

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. While other compounds share these properties, gluconate is a superior sequestrant and remains stable even in high alkalinity and extremes of temperature.
