So, what is calcium citrates?

Calcium citrates are a type of calcium salt that are commonly used as a food additive. They are derived from citric acid and are often used to fortify foods with calcium, such as juices, soy products, and baked goods. Calcium citrates have a slightly bitter taste and are highly soluble in water, making them easy to incorporate into food products. They are also a good source of calcium, which is an essential mineral for maintaining strong bones and teeth. Calcium citrates are generally considered safe for consumption, but should be used in moderation as excessive calcium intake can lead to health problems.
