These bio available nutrients are unique from other plant nutrients because they utilize a new scientific and innovative technology developed by us. Production of gluconic acid and its salts: Gluconic Acid and its salts are used extensively as sequestering agent for metal ions in alkaline system. The outstanding property of Gluconic Acid is excellent chelating power, especially in alkaline and concentrated alkaline solutions.
Gluconic acid is a non corrosive mild organic acid. Gluconic acid is produced by aerobic fermentation process of glucose in presence of eco-friendly micro organism, under strictly defined physico-chemical conditions in our state of the art laboratory. Further, it is chelated with Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Manganese, Copper, Boron, Phosphorus, Sodium and Zinc, etc. by using their salts. Salts of gluconic acid find various applications in diverse areas like animal and human healthcare, agriculture, cosmetic ingredients and detergents. Inorganic minerals are converted to highly stable organic, bio-available minerals by the formation of bond (chelation) between gluconic acid, protein hydrolysate (amino acid) and mineral. Mineral (salt) is encapsulated with gluconic acid and amino acid. So, it gives double advantage of chelation.
This process prevents the inactivation of salts. After the application of the chelated nutrient (salt) to the host, the nutrient is released and the remaining organic acids(amino acid and gluconic acid) are used by the host as a slow release source of nitrogen/proteins. This transport system has its advantages in its mode of action & bonding action. Due to encapsulation of mineral with organic acid, it reduces loss or inactivation of nutrients. This makes it more effectively absorbed by the host, resulting in overall growth of the host. Amino acid –gluconic acid bond, due to its amine back bone & carbohydrate side chains,has the ability to bind multiple minerals & thus has the ability to transport more minerals through the chelated complex & less by means of active diffusion as in the case of most other natural chelates.
The concentration of minerals in amine gluconic acid(and its salts) is much higher than other available chelates. By this technology, insoluble minerals are transformed into highly water soluble micro particles. The ability of a mineral to be utilized by the host is primarily a matter of size. These micro particles are absorbed at lower dosages (bio-available) by the host cells very effectively. This is nano technology at its best! These products are non-phytotoxic, bio-degradable and are viable alternatives to chemical inputs. ARYAPRO and AVISHI brand products are authorized inputs for organic farming, attested by ECOCERT (according to European Council and USNOP regulations).
