Reckoned for its hygroscopic properties, Calcium Acetate is a calcium salt of acetic acid that helps in phosphate binding. The molecular formula is Ca(C2H3O2)2. Often used as a chemical compound in medical drugs to help increase blood phosphate levels in renal diseases (depending on the medical history and present condition of the patient), Calcium Acetate is also used as an additive in beverages and processed foods, and this calcium salt can comply to many other specific needs other than medical usage. Calcium Acetate is also suitable as a calcium source while manufacturing statin group of medicines.
The calcium acetate is used in a wide range of applications. WBCIL is one of the leading calcium acetate manufacturer and supplier in India which provides best quality calcium acetate in all over India with best prices.

Abstract The gentle corrosion of acetic acid is frequently utilized to modify recycled concrete aggregates for improving concrete performance, but there is a lack of research on the effect of its process product, calcium acetate (CA), on the properties of...Read more
Abstract Context: Hyperphosphatemia has an important role in the development of bone and mineral abnormalities in end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Objective: To compare the phosphorus binding power and the hypercalcemic effect of calcium acetate and calcium carbonate in hemodialysis patients....Read more
Abstract Calcium acetate has many characteristics of an ideal phosphorus binder. It is a readily soluble salt that avidly binds phosphorus in vitro at pH 5 and above. One-dose/one-meal balance studies show it to be more potent than calcium carbonate...Read more
