With the newly developed Tricalcium Citrate 4-hydrate superfine, Dr. Paul Lohmann® found the answer to a high demand on a Calcium Citrate with a sharply reduced speed of sedimentation in dairy products. With the help of this superfine powder, customers will be able to fortify their dairy products with Calcium with a significant reduction of sedimentation during the production process.
The Research and Development department at Dr. Paul Lohmann® did a lot of application trials with Tricalcium Citrate 4-hydrate with different particle sizes like normal powder, micronized powder, fine powder and superfine powder. The products were tested on their performance in different kinds of dairy products, e.g. milk (1.5 % fat and 3.5 % fat), cream and oat milk. The test results showed that the superfine powder was the best performing product within this series of tests, with the slowest sedimentation velocity and the smallest amount of sediment at the bottom of the testing tubes. Another positive effect is the improvement of taste and mouth feeling by using the superfine powder.
