LACTIC

Lactic Acid is the second largest edible organic acid after Citric Acid, and it is the backbone of the lactic market. This includes Sodium Lactate, Potassium Lactate, and Blends. Due to their antibacterial, pH regulation, water holding and flavoring properties, Lactics are used in a wide range of food, personal care, and industrial applications.

Lactic Acid:
Lactic Acid is an organic acid occurring naturally in the human body and in fermented foods. In a wide range of applications, it is used as a mild acidity regulator with flavor enhancing and antibacterial properties. Commercial production is done by fermentation of natural carbohydrates.

Lactic Acid is a colorless to yellowish, nearly odorless, syrupy liquid with a mild acidic taste. Casey Ingredients offers it as an aqueous solution in various concentrations. It is non-toxic to humans and the environment and is readily biodegradable.

Sodium Lactate:
Sodium Lactate is the sodium salt of Lactic Acid, obtained by neutralizing the acid of natural origin with a high purity sodium source. Through glycolysis, it is produced naturally by living organisms. It is a safe preservative with a high water holding capacity and buffering properties for food and personal care.

Sodium Lactate is a colorless to yellowish, nearly odorless aqueous solution with a mild salty taste. It is non-toxic to humans and the environment and is readily biodegradable.

Potassium Lactate:
Potassium Lactate is the potassium salt of Lactic Acid, obtained by neutralizing the acid of natural origin with a high purity potassium source. Through glycolysis, it is produced naturally by living organisms. It is a safe preservative with a high water holding capacity and buffering properties for food and personal care.

As an alternative to Sodium Lactate, it addresses the concerns of health organizations and consumers about reducing sodium intake.

Potassium Lactate is a colorless to yellowish, nearly odorless aqueous solution with a mild salty taste. It is non-toxic to humans and the environment and is readily biodegradable.

Sodium Lactate Blend:
Our current offering is a blend of Sodium Lactate and Sodium Diacetate. Sodium Diacetate is a compound of acetic acid and sodium acetate. This blend is a safe and effective preservative for processed meat and fish products. It suppresses the growth of pathogens and prolongs the product shelf life.



Potassium Lactate Blends:
Our current offering consists of blends of Potassium Lactate with either sodium acetate, sodium diacetate, potassium acetate or potassium diacetate or organic vinegar.

Sodium Diacetate and Potassium Diacetate are compounds of acetic acid and sodium or potassium acetate.
Vinegar is produced by natural fermentation of goods of agricultural origin.

All of these blends are safe and effective preservatives for processed meat and fish products. They suppress the growth of pathogens and prolong product shelf life. As sodium reduced alternatives they address the concerns of health organizations and consumers about reducing sodium intake.

Furthermore, the blend of Potassium Lactate and Organic Vinegar provides the additional benefit of a cleaner label in processed meat.
