Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals

Nutraceuticals

Nutraceuticals High purity API for calcium supplementation in nutraceuticals and drugs

Imerys precipitated calcium carbonates (PCC) and calcium citrate are excellent active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) for calcium supplementation in nutraceuticals and drugs.

Imerys pharmaceutical-grade precipitated calcium carbonates provide an excellent source of calcium, making them ingredients of choice for calcium supplementation in drugs and nutraceuticals such as sport nutrition products, supplements and foods.  Alternatively, calcium citrate can also be an excellent source of calcium where there is a need for faster solubility, where stomach acids are lower or sensitivity is a concern.   

We recommend our Calcius™ for calcium supplementation in nutraceuticals and drugs.

Calcius™ is suitable for swallowable, effervescent and chewable products as well as supplements in powder or tablet form.
