Glucono delta-lactone (GDL) is a naturally-occurring food additive (E575) used as a sequestrant, an acidifier, or a curing, pickling, or leavening agent. Pure GDL is a white odorless crystalline powder. Glucono-delta-lactone, upon addition to water readily forms an equilibrium mixture of the lactone GDL and gluconic acid. GDL is commonly found in honey, fruit juices, and wine. Being acidic, it adds a tangy taste to foods, though it has roughly a third of the sourness of citric acid.
GDL is metabolized to glucose; one gram of GDL is equivalent to one gram of sugar.

Why do we charge for this paperwork?
The majority of our customers do not require this paperwork so we are able to pass on the savings. The cost of supplying this paperwork for a $10 product outstrips the product price. Compliance is a major cost to our company and if you require this then its only fair you share the cost. These fees can get quite high for example with all the information required for Organic Certification. See below on how to avoid the fees.
Don't want to pay for a certificate?
