Multipurpose, vegan friendly ferrous lactate serves numerous functions in the food preparation industry
Ferrous lactate can be viewed by many as the one stop shop for common food additive needs. Commonly referred to as iron (ii) lactate, the compound serves a variety of functions in virtually all preparation scenarios. Working overtime, this additive not only functions as a colouring and colour retention resource but also as an iron supplement most commonly found in baby formulas. In addition, it is highly effective as an acid reducer and regulator, and it can be packaged in accordance with most dietary needs, including all religious observances, vegetarian and vegan standards. As a relatively easy to use and commonly distributed child safe (in proper doses) food supplement, ferrous lactate is a modern wonder.
