So, what is e227?

E227, also known as calcium lactate, is a white crystalline salt commonly used as a food preservative and flavor enhancer. It's produced by combining lactic acid with calcium carbonate, and can be found in a variety of foods including baked goods, dairy products, beverages, and processed meats. Calcium lactate is known for its ability to improve texture, increase shelf life, and maintain freshness in food products. In addition to its culinary uses, it's also used in some medical applications as a calcium supplement and to treat certain skin conditions. While generally considered safe, some individuals may experience allergic reactions or gastrointestinal issues when consuming large amounts of this ingredient.
