Sodium gluconate is the sodium salt of gluconic acid, produced by fermentation of glucose. The outstanding property of sodium gluconate is its excellent chelating power, especially in alkaline and concentrated alkaline solutions. It is used to clean metal and glass, with applications such as bottle washing, food service and utensil cleaning, food process equipment cleaning, and paint removal. Aqueous solutions of sodium gluconate are resistant to oxidation and reduction, even at high temperatures. In the medicine field, it can keep the balance of acid and alkali in the human body, and recover the normal operation of nerve. It can be used in the preventaion and cure of syndrome for low sodium. In this purpose, it also can be used as food additives. It also used as water quality stabilizer because it has excellent inhibiting capacity to scale.
