Manganese gluconate

Manganese is an antioxidant trace-element:

  • through the intermediary of the metalloenzyme Mn-SOD found in mitochondria
  • through the complexes formed with some organic acids (lactic and propionic) or with carbonates and amino acids.

Manganese gluconate is used as a nutritional ingredient to provide manganese element in dietary supplements but also in dairy products (milk, yoghurt,cheese, …), beverages (water, soft drinks, fruit juices, …) and baby food.
