Description and usage:
Sodium Citrate is widely used in beverages, and food. It is used as an additive.
There is also a pharmaceutical usage in medicine making for Sodium Citrate.
Sodium Citrate is used as excipient to help the APIs to make a formulation. It will be easier for the final drug to act in human body.
Sodium Citrate raw material, API powder is the sodium salt of citric acid. Just like citric acid, Sodium Citrate also has a sour taste and salty taste. Sodium Citrate raw material, API powder is commonly known as sour salt and is primarily used as a food additive, usually for flavor or as a preservative. Sodium Citrate provides club soda with its sour and salty flavors. In addition, Sodium Citrate will reduce the acidity of foods, so it allows spherification with strongly acidic ingredients. Sodium citrate is also used as an antioxidant in food as well as a sequestrant. It is able to dissolve easily and acts instantaneously.
There are 3 types of sodium citrate:
monosodium citrate, disodium citrate, and trisodium. Most sodium citrate used for food is the trisodium form.
In Sodium Citrate, Sodium is the weak conjugate base of citric acid. Essentially, if we remove the H+ portion of citric acid and replace it with Na+ ions, we can get get sodium citrate.
For practical purposes, this means that sodium citrate has long been an important chemical for use in the chemistry lab. As a conjugate base to citric acid, Sodium Citrate serves to buffer changes in acidity. In other words, when sodium citrate is present in a solution, it will need more acid than normal to change the pH of the solution. This is a very useful property, as Sodium Citrate will make it much easier to make fine adjustments in acidity.
As a professional China Sodium Citrate Raw Material supplier and Manufacturer in China, FENGCHEN GROUP CO., LTD has been supplying and exporting Sodium Citrate API from China in China for almost 10 years.
Sodium Citrate Function:
Besides the ability to buffer pH (reduce acidity), the citrate ion in sodium citrate also functions as a sequestering agent. It is to say that the citrate ion is likely to bind with other ions which are present in a solution---particularly calcium. In cheese, the calcium ions in cheese's casein milk protein are replaced with sodium ions. When this happens, the casein changes structure and exposes both water-loving and oil-loving ends. The casein, then, is the emulsifier, even though sodium citrate is considered an emulsifying salt.
Sodium citrate's sequestering properties are essential in molecular gastronomy, too. If the liquid to be used for hydration contains natural calcium ions, it is necessary to use a sequestrant like sodium citrate to bind those ions and enable proper hydration. Spherification is one of the applications.
Spherification occurs when a hydrocolloid reacts with calcium and forms a thin skin. Sometimes, however, two much calcium can be present in the mixtures involved, usually due to naturally-occurring calcium in tap water. Sequestrant, like sodium citrate raw material, API powder, are utilized to reduce calcium and prevent early gelation. They are particularly useful for this purpose because they can also slightly increase pH, which will benefit the basic spherification process.
