January 2012/Prepared Foods-- Since 2009, Jungbunzlauer has produced zinc citrate trihydrate, a high-quality zinc salt for food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic applications. However, the trihydrate form is currently not listed in any pharmacopeia, while many customers—especially in the dietary supplements industry—increasingly desire to source monographed raw materials. In order to completely fulfill these market requirements, Jungbunzlauer now additionally offers zinc citrate dihydrate. Having similar properties in terms of taste, solubility and mineral content compared to the trihydrate form, the dihydrate offers the advantage that it is monographed in USP-NF Dietary Supplements since 2010.
