D Calcium Pantothenate Uses

Calcium pantothenate is widely used in medicine, cosmetics, food, and feed. Approximately, the ratio is 21% for pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, 9% for food, and 70% for feed.

In pharmaceuticals and cosmetics

D-calcium pantothenate can be used as a vitamin medicine. It is the main component of coenzyme A. Its main role is to participate in the metabolism of sugar, fat, and protein. It is also used to treat vitamin B deficiency, peripheral neuritis, and colic after surgery, and vitamin C synthesis can treat disseminated lupus erythematosus.

In food

Calcium pantothenate can be used as a nutritional fortifier and an enhancer to enhance the flavor of food. With the development of the economy and society, people pay more and more attention to health, and healthy food has become a popular product and has gradually become a necessity.

Calcium pantothenate can provide both pantothenic acid and a source of calcium, which has won everyone’s favor. It also has the effect of enhancing the flavor of food, for example, it can be added to shochu and whiskey. It can also reduce the bitterness of caffeine.


In feed

In feed, calcium pantothenate can effectively supplement the animal’s demand for pantothenic acid. Some animals cannot produce enough pantothenic acid and need external supplementation, such as monogastric animals such as pigs and chickens, and fish.

If the animal body lacks pantothenic acid, it will cause many diseases, including skin and mucosal lesions, speech, intestinal and respiratory diseases, and reproductive disorders. It will also lead to a decrease in the egg production rate of poultry.
