Sodium gluconate: Major type used in all applications

Sodium gluconate is the sodium salt of gluconic acid produced by fermentation of glucose. It is predominately used for technical applications as an effective set retarder and plasticizer in concrete admixtures, as well as a chelating agent for calcium and magnesium ions in industrial, institutional, and household cleaning products. In personal care products, sodium gluconate is used as a chelating agent (replacement of EDTA) as well as a powerful moisturizing ingredient. Use of sodium gluconate in food applications such as in formulation of high-intensity sweeteners, mineral salts, and cleaning operations of food processing equipment has increased, thus driving its demand.
