What Is the Calcium Citrate?
Calcium citrate is the calcium salt of citric acid. It is commonly used as a food additive (E333), usually as a preservative, but sometimes for flavor. Calcium citrate is also found in some dietary calcium supplements . Calcium makes up 24.1% of calcium citrate (anhydrous) and 21.1% of calcium citrate (tetrahydrate) by mass. 
As a food calcium fortifier, calcium citrate has better absorption effect than inorganic calcium. China stipulates that it can be used for cereals and their products, with the dosage of 8-16g/kg and 1.8-3.6g/kg in milk drinks and drinks.
Calcium citrate is an important food additive, often used as a buffer, coagulant, calcium fortifier, emulsifying salt, etc. in industry. As a calcium fortifier, it has the characteristics of being tasteless.

Calcium Citrate VS Calcium Carbonate
There are three main categories of calcium tablets: one is called calcium carbonate, which is inorganic calcium; the other is called calcium gluconate and calcium citrate, which are organic calcium; the third category is organic acid calcium tablets.
Let's talk about the difference between calcium carbonate and calcium citrate, and how to choose.
1. Different prices:
Compared with calcium citrate, calcium carbonate has a wider range of applications and is cheaper.
2. Different calcium content:
The calcium content of calcium carbonate is higher than that of calcium citrate. Therefore, the amount of calcium carbonate to supplement calcium is generally significantly less than that of calcium citrate per day.
3. Different absorption effects:
Calcium carbonate is better absorbed when taken with meals, so it needs to be taken with meals. In contrast, calcium citrate is more casual, whether it is taken on an empty stomach or with meals. In other words, the absorption effect of calcium citrate is better than that of calcium carbonate.
4. Time of taking medicine:
When taking medicine, you have to take calcium citrate: the absorption of calcium carbonate requires the participation of gastric acid, while calcium citrate does not. Therefore, if you have gastritis, gastric ulcer and other diseases, and are taking some drugs that inhibit gastric acid secretion, such as omeprazole, XX prazole, cimetidine, XX tidine. At this time, calcium carbonate is poorly absorbed, and you should choose to take calcium citrate.
5. Different side effects:
Calcium carbonate can cause side effects such as indigestion and flatulence, but calcium citrate may also cause adverse effects such as headaches and constipation.


Application of Calcium Citrate:

Food processing
Calcium citrate is often used as an acidity regulator and coagulant in food processing. For example, in jelly making, calcium citrate can help jelly maintain a stable coagulation state, extend its shelf life, and adjust the taste and sweetness and sourness of jelly.

Drug formulations
In the pharmaceutical industry, calcium citrate is often used in the preparation of calcium supplements and some drug formulations. Calcium is an essential nutrient for the human body, so calcium citrate plays an important role in the preparation of oral calcium supplements.

Cosmetics
Calcium citrate is also widely used in cosmetic manufacturing. It may appear in skin care products, cosmetics and personal care products, usually as a stabilizer or acidity regulator.


What Is Calcium Citrate Made From?
Calcium carbonate → calcination → powder (CaO) → digestion Ca(0H): → neutralization (citric acid) → heating → precipitation → filtration → calcium citrate → drying → crushing → tableting → product
