Low lead zinc salts from Jost Chemical

Jost Chemical manufactures high purity zinc with lead levels less than 1 ppm that can be used in dietary supplements and nutrients. The low lead zinc salts from Jost include citrates, gluconates, lactates, oxides, and sulphates.


Zinc is essential for body growth, maturation and development, as well as tissue repair and resistance to disease. Zinc is an important mineral for children and the elderly. The body needs 15.0 milligrams of zinc per day. A daily intake of zinc is required to maintain a steady state because the body has no specialised zinc storage system. Zinc is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Zinc is also found in many cold lozenges and some over-the-counter drugs sold as cold remedies.


The high purity specialty chemicals from Jost Chemical are manufactured using innovative, controlled processes that yield products that go beyond the established high purity standards. With 30 years of experience, Jost manufactures high purity USP/EP/FCC mineral salts in cGMP compliant, FDA-registered facilities. The products are fully reacted, consistent from lot-to-lot and meet all customer requirements.
