BRN  83286
(GDL) An acidulant. It hydrolyzes to form gluconic acid in water solution and thereby creates the desired pH. The rate of acid formation is affected by temperature, concentration, and the pH of the solution. It has low acid release at room temperature and accelerated conversion into gluconic acid at high temperatures. It is readily soluble with a solubility of 59 g in 100 ml of water at 20°C. It functions as a leavening agent, acidulant, curing and pickling agent, and pH control agent. It is comparatively less tart/sour than other food acids. It is used in baked goods, fish products, desserts, and dressings.
