Gluconates: Produced by Sudeep, Distributed by Viachem

This month we are highlighting four specific Gluconates produced by Sudeep Pharma Pvt. Ltd.: Zinc Gluconate, Ferrous Gluconate, Calcium Gluconate and Potassium Gluconate. Gluconates, which are salts of gluconic acid, have numerous uses and positively impact health when distributed appropriately. 

Zinc Gluconate (C12H22O14Zn) is one of the most common over-the-counter forms of zinc. A white or nearly white granular or crystalline powder, zinc gluconate is freely soluble in water and very slightly soluble in alcohol. Often used in cold remedies, such as lozenges and nasal sprays, it provides 14.35% elemental zinc by weight. 

Ferrous Gluconate (C12H24FeO14), also known as Iron(II) Gluconate, is a black compound often used as an iron supplement, treating or preventing low blood levels of iron (such as those caused by anemia or pregnancy). Viachem’s customers who regularly purchase ferrous gluconate are primarily in the pharmaceutical field.

Sudeep’s Calcium Gluconate (C12H22CaO14) is a food-grade mineral supplement and medication. It is used to treat low blood calcium, high blood potassium, magnesium toxicity and other conditions arising from calcium deficiencies. Generally, supplementation is only required when there is not enough calcium in the diet. Calcium gluconate is slowly soluble in water.

Potassium Gluconate (C6H11KO7) is a mineral supplement that treats low amounts of potassium in the blood. Potassium helps your cells, heart, kidneys, nerves and muscles function properly. Potassium gluconate contains 16.69% potassium by mass.

For the last quarter-century, Sudeep has been a leading producer of Calcium-based Pharmaceutical, Food and Feed ingredients in India. With an annual manufacturing capacity of 10,000MT, they deliver Pharma, Food and Feed ingredient solutions to over 750 customers across 30 countries.
