Food grade lactic acid
Food grade lactic acid (80% lactic acid content)
The company's food-grade lactic acid (80% lactic acid content) is produced from pure natural grain starch using modern fermentation technology. This product is a colorless or light yellow clear viscous liquid, no bad smell, slightly sour taste, hygroscopicity, acidic reaction in aqueous solution, can be mixed with water, ethanol or ether, and insoluble in chloroform.
The main purpose
This product has the characteristics of pure natural, soft acidity and certain thermal stability. It is widely used in various fields such as food, medicine and electroplating.
The structural formula of lactic acid is CH3CHOHCOOH, the molecular formula C3H6O3, the relative molecular mass is 90.08, and the molecule has both hydroxyl (OH) and carboxyl (COOH) functional groups. It is the most widely existed hydroxycarboxylic acid in nature and the simplest one. Hydroxamic acid. Lactic acid is widely present in animals, plants, and microorganisms. L-lactic acid and L-lactate dehydrogenase capable of metabolizing L-lactic acid are present in tissues of humans and animals, and D-lactate dehydrogenase is absent. The human body ingests L lactic acid, which can be absorbed and decomposed, while D lactic acid can not be decomposed, and it is easy to form D lactic acid enrichment in the body.
Lactic acid and lactate applications
The lactic acid name is a-hydroxypropionic acid, which is widely used in pharmaceutical, brewing, food, beverage, health care products, paper, leather, cigarette, paint, ink, electroplating and plastics industries and oil pipeline anticorrosion. Because lactic acid is easily absorbed by the body, it directly participates in the body's metabolism and promotes digestion. It is called "muscle lactic acid" and is a shining star in the field of bio-chemicals and fine chemicals.
1. Meat and poultry products
Lactic acid is an organic acid that is widely found in meat. L-sodium lactate captures a large amount of free water in foods and has the effect of reducing water activity, thereby inhibiting the growth of microorganisms. Therefore, it is widely used in the meat and poultry food processing industry to extend the shelf life of products. In addition, it enhances and maintains the flavor of the product.
2. Vegetable pickled products
Lactic acid can adjust the pH value, thereby controlling fermentation and inhibiting the growth of pathogenic microorganisms, effectively preventing spoilage of radish, cabbage, cucumber, onion and other vegetables marinated in salt water, ensuring product stability and improving taste.
3. Beverages and wine making
Lactic acid has a mild acidity and is a preferred sour agent for delicately formulated soft drinks and juices. L-calcium lactate,
Iron, magnesium, zinc, etc. are used as mineral enhancers for juices, health drinks and soft drinks. When brewing beer, adding proper amount of lactic acid can adjust the pH value to promote saccharification, facilitate yeast fermentation, improve beer quality, increase beer flavor and extend shelf life. It is used to adjust pH in liquor, sake and fruit wine to prevent the growth of bacteria, enhance the acidity and refreshing taste.
4. Dairy products
Lactic acid is an intrinsic ingredient in dairy products. It has a natural taste and good antibacterial effect. It is a popular dairy acidifier and pH regulator. Calcium lactate and ferric lactate, magnesium, zinc, etc. can be used to strengthen the minerals in milk and fermented milk beverages without affecting the flavor and taste of the product, and without protein precipitation.
5. Nutritional products and health foods
Calcium lactate, magnesium, zinc and iron can strengthen minerals in sports health drinks, juices, diet foods and baby products. They are water-soluble, moderate in taste, easy to be absorbed and utilized by the human body, can enhance human body function and enhance explosive power.
6. Pasta products
Lactic acid is a naturally fermented organic acid that gives bread a unique taste. Lactic acid can also synthesize sodium stearoyl lactylate and calcium stearoyl lactylate for use as an emulsifier in bread. Calcium lactate as a flour improver can improve raw materials, improve mechanical resistance, taste, and prevent aging. Buffered lactic acid also acts on the protein in the flour, which can make the gluten form a rich mesh structure, increase the volume, especially to make the taste better, prevent aging; also make the noodles elastic, increase the elasticity of the surface, and have smooth and transparent The appearance of the feeling, and can improve the taste and flavor.
Buffered lactic acid is a buffer system in which lactic acid and sodium lactate are mixed in a certain ratio. It has a mild sour taste. After adding buffered lactic acid to the candy, a lower sugar conversion rate can be obtained, thereby prolonging the shelf life; powdered lactic acid can make the appearance of the soft candy Better, greatly reduce the occurrence of surface moisture; sodium lactate can play a role in reducing sugar conversion and protecting the gel; calcium lactate can also be used in chewing gum to stabilize the colloid and adjust the pH, while calcium ions can prevent teeth The loss of minerals can achieve the effect of healthy teeth.
1. Oral care
Sodium lactate is mainly used as an injection in the medical field. Its main function is to supplement body fluids and regulate the balance of electrolytes in the human body to relieve dehydration caused by diarrhea and poisoning caused by diabetes and gastritis.
2. Chiral intermediates
Lactic acid having an optical purity of 98% or more can be used as a starting synthetic raw material for chiral drugs. Lactic acid ester directly participates in the synthesis as an intermediate to improve efficacy.
3. Medical materials and drug release
Polylactic acid is a polycondensate of lactic acid, which is hydrolyzed into lactic acid in human tissues. Lactic acid is a metabolite of human body and can be further decomposed into carbon dioxide and water. Therefore, polylactic acid is non-toxic and has good degradability, and can be made into many different kinds. Medical materials for use, such as: degradable surgical sutures, fracture internal fixation, tissue repair materials, and filling materials for treating retinal detachment. In addition, since polylactic acid itself is metabolically safe and easy to form a film, it can be used as an ideal material for sustained drug delivery, and is widely used in a sustained release/controlled release system of a pharmaceutical.
4. Mineral strengthening
Lactate (calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, etc.) has a high bioavailability and a good palatability, and can be used as a tablet or a powder as a deficiency for various minerals.
1. Electroless nickel plating complexing agent
Lactic acid has a unique complexation constant for nickel. More than 97% of the nickel ions in the electroless nickel plating solution of the lactic acid-nickel ion system are in the complex ion state, and the free nickel ion content is less than 3%. Therefore, lactic acid is commonly used for electroless nickel plating. One of the complexing agents. Compared with other complexing agents, lactic acid has strong stability in the plating solution, which can effectively control the deposition rate to ensure uniform and fine plating and stable plating solution. In addition, it is also very effective for suppressing the precipitation of nickel phosphite generated during the electroless nickel plating operation. Lactic acid has excellent synergistic ability, and can form binary or multi-component complexing agent with various complexing agents such as sodium citrate, malic acid and succinic acid, further satisfying the demand for complexing agent in the electroless nickel plating industry.
2. Paint and coating industry
