This ingredient provides highly absorptive calcium while enhancing taste and texture. CalciLife™ from GTC Nutrition, uses a combination of fructo-oligosaccharides (scFOS), which has been shown to increase calcium absorption, and calcium derived from sea minerals, which not only adds the essential nutrient, but actually improves the taste and texture of fortified products.

The porous nature of the sea mineral matrix gives a smoother mouthfeel without the chalky bitterness of other calcium-fortification ingredients, and has a slightly sweet taste to combat lingering offnotes common to artificial sweeteners and soy products.
