Glucono delta-lactone (GDL) is a food additive which is also known as gluconolactone. It is represented with the EU number E575. Glucono delta-lactone is used to improve the quality and stability of the food products. It is produced by oxidizing gluconic acid by various methods. Glucono delta-lactone is also used as a pH controlling agent as well as an acidulant. Glucono delta-lactone is also used as a tofu coagulant. Pure glucono delta-lactone is a white crystalline powder which is odourless and is non-toxic. Glucono delta-lactone is moderately soluble in alcohol but is freely soluble in water. Glucono delta-lactone is commonly found in fruit juices, royal jelly, honey, wine and other fermented products in its natural state (gluconic acid). Glucono delta-lactone is neutral in nature but slowly hydrolyses into gluconic acid in water which is acidic.
