Commercial BP IP Pure FCC Food Grade Suppliers
Iron (II) gluconate, or ferrous gluconate, is a black compound often used as an iron supplement. It is the iron (II) salt of gluconic acid. It is used as a food additive when processing black olives. It is represented by the food labeling E number E579 in Europe. It imparts a uniform jet black color to the olives. We offer Commercial pure, BP IP and FCC Food grade.

Iron (II) Gluconate
C12H22FeO14·2H2O --- Formula weight 482.18
INS: 579 ---CAS: [299-29-6]
Ferrous Gluconate occurs as a fine, yellow-gray or pale green-yellow powder or granules. One gram dissolves in about 10 mL of water with slight heating. It is practically insoluble in
alcohol. A 1:20 aqueous solution is acid to litmus.
Function: Nutrient; color adjunct.
A. Dissolve a quantity of sample in water, heating in a water bath at 60° if necessary, to obtain a Test Solution containing 10 mg/mL. Similarly, prepare a Standard Solution of USP Ferrous Gluconate Reference Standard in water, diluting to 10 mg/mL. Apply separate 5- L portions of the Test Solution and the Standard Solution on a suitable thin-layer chromatographic
plate coated with a 0.25-mm layer of chromatographic silica gel, and allow to dry. Develop the chromatogram in a solvent system consisting of a mixture of alcohol, water, ammonium hydroxide, and ethyl acetate (50:30:10:10) until the solvent front has moved about three-fourths of the length of the plate. Remove the plate from the chamber, and dry at 110° for 20
minutes Allow to cool, and spray with a spray reagent prepared as follows: Dissolve 2.5 g of ammonium molybdate in about 50 mL of 2 N sulfuric acid in a 100-mL volumetric flask, add 1.0 g of ceric sulfate, swirl to dissolve, dilute with 2 N sulfuric acid to volume, and mix. After spraying, heat the plate at 110° for about 10 minutes The principal spot obtained from the Test Solution corresponds in color, size, and Rf value to that obtained from the Standard Solution.
B. A 1:20 aqueous solution gives positive tests for Ferrous Salts (Iron).
Assay: Not less than 97.0% and not more than 102.0% of C12H22FeO14, calculated on the dried basis.
Chloride: Not more than 0.07%.
Ferric Iron: Not more than 2.0%.
Lead: Not more than 2 mg/kg.
Loss on Drying: Between 6.5% and 10.0%.

Personal precautions, protective equipment, and emergency procedures: Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Restrict unprotected personnel from the area. Prevent any contact with hot surfaces. Do not approach facing the wind. Do not touch the spilled material.
Environmental precautions: Do not let the product enter drains, soil, or water sources.
Methods and materials used for containment Cleanup procedures and Storage:
Small Spill: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose of according to legal authority requirements.
Large Spill: Do not inhale dust, vapors, mist, or gas. Avoid dust formation. Contain spilled material. Cover with an inert, non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite). Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and allow to evacuate as per law.
Section 7: Handling and Storage
Precautions for safe handling: Apply according to good manufacturing and industrial hygiene practices. Ensure proper ventilation. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not drink, eat, or smoke while handling. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Minimize dust generation. Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Prevent any contact with hot surfaces.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in cool, dry, and ventilated area away from heat sources and protected from sunlight in tightly closed original container. Keep air contact to a minimum. Store protected from heat, sparks and ignition sources and incompatible materials. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of dust/mist/vapor. Do not store with incompatible materials like strong oxidizing agents. Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition.
Section 8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Exposure Limits: Not established. Keep at 1 mg/m3.
Engineering Controls: Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fume, or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator may be worn. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Control Measures: Maintain good housekeeping in work area. Dust deposits on floors and other surfaces may pick up moisture and cause the surfaces to become slippery and present safety hazards. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands after handling.
