Chemical Information
FooDB NameCalcium gluconate
DescriptionFood additive: firming agent, sequestrant, stabiliser, texturiser. Anticaking agent in powdered coffee Calcium gluconate is a mineral supplement. It is the form of calcium most widely used in the treatment of hypocalcemia. Calcium gluconate contains 9.3% calcium. It is also used to counteract an overdose of magnesium sulfate, often administered to pregnant women experiencing premature labor to slow or stop contractions. Excess magnesium sulfate can cause respiratory depression, for which calcium gluconate would be the antidote.
