Coral Calcium USP Powder

USP Coral Minerals of fossilized Finger Corals


Our Coral Calcium USP Powder comes from a high purity Coral Reef of fossilized Finger Corals in the Carribeans. Its superior purity and performance distinguish it from competitive products. Our Coral Calcium USP Powder is rich in calcium. It is 40% elemental calcium. It takes only 1 gram of our Coral Calcium USP Powder to add 400 milligrams of elemental calcium to your product. Our product provides nature's finest source of bio-available calcium along with 76 vital trace minerals. Every one of these minerals is similar in proportions to those found in the human body.

 Our Coral Calcium USP Powder contains less than 125 parts per billion of lead, and meets the requirements of California Proposition 65.

 Our Coral Calcium Powder USP grade product meets and exceeds the requirements for Calcium Carbonate of the United States Pharmacopeia, Food Chemicals Codex, Japanese Pharmacopoeia, and European Pharmacopoeia. As Calcium Carbonate, this product is recognized as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA (21CFR 184.1191) with no limitations other than good manufacturing practices. This makes Our Coral Calcium Powder suitable for both direct and indirect food applications.

 Our Coral Calcium Powder USP is manufactured with natural and high quality standards, certified to ISO 9001 standards.

 Our Coral Calcium Powder is derived from very low lead Reef Coral Minerals. Its physical properties are that of rhombohedral particles of medium oil absorption, very mild abrasion and a high surface area. 90.0% (by number) of its particles are less than 1.3 microns. 99.9% (by number) of its particles are less than 7.7 microns. It contains a high density of very fine and medium fine powder.



Our Coral Calcium Powder is specifically tailored to meet the challenging applications and requirements of the Pharmaceutical and Nutritional supplement industries. With our product, your formulators can develop antacids and chewable supplement tablets of better texture and palatability, due to its superior sensory performance. For larger or chewable tablets, our Coral Calcium Powder is best. Due to its superior characteristics, it minimizes the effect on taste. It is ideal for use as a masticating agent in chewing gums, as a carrier/additive in foods, beverages, liquid supplements, effervescent, chewable and swallowed tablets, toothpastes and many other items.
