After establishing our presence across the markets in nationwide, we are now focusing on the international markets. Our calcium levulinate USP and calcium levulinate BP meets the required grade in laboratory manufacturing.

Calcium Levulinate

Calcium levulinate is derived from L- or levulinic acid levulose and calcium hydroxide. The calcium levulinate has a high calcium content, about 14.8% higher than calcium lactate. It has a lower molecular weight that is easy to absorb through the intestinal walls. It can be used as food fortifier in condiments, beer, sauces, beverages, milk, soft drinks, and milk and soy products. We keep both the formulations of calcium levulinate — calcium levulinate USP and calcium levulinate BP.
