Food Grade Calcium Carbonate


Choosing the most effective food grade calcium product in a formulation is a critical decision.  Food grade calcium carbonate has the highest concentration of elemental calcium — 40% by weight. Many studies have shown that calcium from calcium carbonate in food is readily absorbed by the body. Calcium carbonate is more economical to use and the food additive provides the nutritional Properties required by formulators.  Typical food grade calcium carbonate applications include:

 – Breakfast Cereal

– Nutritional Bars

– Baked Foods

– Biscuits and Crackers

– Soups and Sauces

– Food Processing
