PCC in food industry

11/03/2015

One of the most common applications of Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) is as food additive.

PCC is used as a food additive due to its chemical purity and its high specific surface area compared to natural calcium carbonates because it has been demonstrated that calcium carbonate in food is one to the calcium formats which is better absorbed by humans. For this reason is used as calcium support in different mixtures or as integrated of food additives.

The minerals are essential in humans diet. And specifically calcium,  for its role in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth. There are endless calcium rich food. In others is used as acidity reducer, to improve textures, as anti-stiffness, as superficial colorant, fermentation aid, etc.

Precipitated Calcium Carbonate has a higher purity compared to other CaCO3 formats, and for this reason is the most able to be used as food additive.
