So, what is natriumgluconat?

Natriumgluconat is a food additive and a sodium salt of gluconic acid. It is a white crystalline powder that is soluble in water and has a slightly sweet taste. Natriumgluconat is commonly used as a chelating agent, which means it binds to metal ions to prevent them from reacting with other ingredients. Additionally, natriumgluconat can act as a buffering agent, regulating the acidity in food products. This ingredient is often found in processed foods, beverages, and dietary supplements. As a safe and effective ingredient, natriumgluconat is approved for use in many countries worldwide.
