Product nameSodium gluconate, chelating agent
DescriptionSodium salt of gluconic acid, widely used in food and pharmaceutical industry. Chelating agent.
- D-Gluconate sodium salt
- D-Gluconic acid sodium salt
Chelates calcium and other di-and trivalent metal ions. Food additive used as a sequestrant. Dietary sodium gluconate protects rats from large bowel cancer by stimulating apoptosis through enhanced butyrate production. Antitumorigenic effect may involve the regulation of the retinoid signaling pathway by butyrate in a retinoid-independent manner.
Chemical nameD-Gluconic acid sodium salt
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
