Fortify milk with magnesium
August 19, 2008
by Jeff Gelski
Gadomag K, a new patent-pending magnesium-citrate compound, may be used to fortify soy milk, dairy milk drinks, smoothies, infant formula and other milk replacements. Gadomag K contains about 10% elemental magnesium and about 10% elemental potassium. It causes no sedimentation and no protein coagulation, according to Gadot Biochemical Ind., Haifa Bay, Israel.
"Many beverage producers developing fortified dairy drinks and soy milk face big challenges in achieving a stable suspension," said Ronny Hacham, vice-president of business development and marketing at Gadot. "Creating a stable suspension in milk drinks and soy milk while avoiding any sedimentation can be easily achieved by using Gadomag K, without the need for adding stabilizers such as hydrocolloids."
