Information on Magnesium Citrate
Magnesium Citrate is Inorganic compound. Magnesium Citrate is a White to off-white powder. It is partially soluble in water. The product should be stored in tightly closed container away from the source of heat.
Synthesis / Manufacturing Process of Magnesium Citrate
The main raw material of Magnesium Citrate is Citric Acid. Citric Acid is available in two forms i.e. Anhydrous & Monohydrate. Citric Acid is produced by fermentation process in which a carbohydrate source is utilized such as corn based starch and sugar beet molasses. Fermentation yields a crude purity product which requires further refining. One refining technique utilities a precipitation process, this process first uses lime to produce Magnesium Citrate solids, this is then treated with sulphuric acid which produces a partially purified soluble citric acid and calcium sulphate as a by-product. Another technique used is solvent extraction. These processes produce streams which require demineralization by ion exchange.
Citric Acid is treated with Magnesium Carbonate to get Magnesium Citrate.
