(I-Newswire) - Fortitech has unveiled a new, patented, functional calcium ingredient, recently shown at the annual IFT Expo in New Orleans, Louisiana in July. The calcium was presented in a Cappuccino flavored, dairy-based shake. This enhanced calcium beverage provides 50 percent of the daily recommended allowance of calcium, which is a much higher level of calcium than the typical 25 to 30 percent levels you often see per 8-ounce serving. The new beverage has no settling, chalky taste, gritty mouthfeel or precipitation. In addition, no stabilizers are required and the ingredient can be used in beverage or liquid food applications. The elements that make this calcium chelate stand apart from other calcium products in that it can be used at very high levels and is dispersible in neutral pH liquids. The new calcium shake also included 22 vitamins and minerals, 18 of which met 25 percent of the recommended daily value.
