Calcium Citrate Malate (CCM)

Good organoleptic properties make CCM particularly well suited as a fortificant in fruit juices, bottled water, and other beverages. Calcium citrate malate (CCM) is the result of a simultaneous reaction with calcium, citric acid, and malic acid in a soluble complex. Research has shown that the absorption rate for CCM is 37% in contrast with 24% for calcium carbonate*. Its unique formula is well tolerated.

  • Powdered drinks
  • Butter & margarine
  • Fruit juices, bottled water, & other beverages

Formulators can also use CCM in solid dosage forms:

  • Tablets
  • Effervescents
  • Capsules
  • Powdered drinks
  • Beverages
