Calcium Pyruvate StructureParchem – fine & specialty chemicals is a global leader in the distribution of high quality raw materials for nutritional supplements such as calcium pyruvate.  Calcium pyruvate [CAS# 52009-14-0] is a white to slightly yellow crystalline powder that is used as an additive in nutritional supplements and as a chemical intermediate for the manufacture of various downstream derivatives.  Parchem supplies dozens of nutritional additives such as calcium pyruvate to the food, nutritional, and pharmaceutical markets.

Calcium pyruvate is the calcium salt of pyruvic acid, which is formed by the ionic bonding of two negatively charged pyruvate anions to one positively charged calcium ion.  These ionic bonds release when calcium pyruvate is introduced to water, allowing the calcium pyruvate complex to separate into its individual components of free calcium and pyruvic acid. Pyruvic acid is also produced naturally in the body when glucose is metabolized for energy during a process known as glycolysis. 

Parchem – fine & specialty chemicals has been supplying nutritional additives such as calcium pyruvate to the nutritional and pharmaceutical markets for over 20 years.  We have a proven reputation for excellence built upon years of commitment to customer satisfaction and continual improvement.  As an industry-leading chemical distributor, we offer the services of expert sales and customer service teams paired with full-service global logistics and strategic warehousing options across the US.  We pride ourselves on being proactive resourcing specialists who have built a worldwide reputation as a vital link in the supply chain.  More businesses choose Parchem because we excel at sourcing difficult-to-find materials and providing them to our customers accurately, on time, and on budget.
