Abstract : In attempting to eliminate the negative effect of metals or metal-containing enzymes in the nutrition industry, efforts are being made to utilize the so-called complexons (derivatives of alpha-aminopolycarbonic acids). These are distinguished by their unusual complex-forming affinity with various metals. The utilization of complexons -- mainly, the bisodium salt of the?ethylendiarnine-tetracetic acid (complexon-3) in food technology -- is based principally on the complexide constants which increase in the order: Na Ca2 Fe2 Co2 = Zn2 Cu2 Pt2 Fe3.
