Tricalcium citrate is the most commonly used calcium salt of citric acid also referred to as tricalcium dicitrate tetrahydrate. Tricalcium citrate also denoted as calcium citrate is produced by neutralizing citric acid with a high quality calcium source such as calcium carbonate or calcium hydroxide. Tricalcium citrate is the most economic calcium salt, containing 21% of calcium. Tricalcium citrate is a white, odourless, crystalline powder or fine powder. Tricalcium citrate is freely soluble in diluted hydrochloric acid and slightly soluble in water. Tricalcium citrate is a better soluble at low temperatures as compared to other salts. Tricalcium citrate is insoluble in alcohol.
As tricalcium citrate has inverse solubility, it is less soluble under heat treatment as compared to other calcium salts. Due to its better bioavailability, tricalcium citrate is preferred over inorganic calcium sources such as calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate. Various regulation or requirements that tricalcium citrate have to meet are US Pharmacopeia (USP), the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC), and the Commission Regulation (EU) No. 231/2012.
