Ferrous lactate Usage And Synthesis

Description

Ferrous lactate (iron (II) lactate, C6H10FeO6), in the trihydrate form is a greenish-white powder or crystalline mass having a characteristic odor. The levo-enantiomer occurs as the dihydrate and the racemic mixture occurs as the trihydrate. It is prepared by reacting calcium lactate or sodium lactate with ferrous sulfate or by direct reaction of lactic acid with iron filings. It is sparingly soluble inwater and practically insoluble in ethanol. A 1 in 50 solution has a pH between 5 and 6.

Chemical Properties

Greenish-white crystals; slight peculiar odor. Soluble in water; insoluble in alcohol. Deliquescent, affected by light. Combustible.

Uses

Ferrous lactate which functions to enrich and fortify. It is of neutral color and flavor, and is soluble. It is used in acid foods below a pH of 4.5, where there is less susceptibility to oxidation and conversion to the ferric form, which results in discoloration. In higher pH foods, the instability can be prevented by complexing with ligands which prevent browning discoloration. It is used in fortification of drinks and juices.

Uses

Iron(II) Lactate is used in the iron fortification of food products, particularly milk products targeted for infants and toddlers.
