Calcium propionate

PRESERVATIVES E282 CALCIUM PROPIONATE CP POWDER FOR BREAD
Calcium propionate (CAS No.4075-81-4) is a new type of food additive . It is a safe and reliable antifungal agent for food and feed approved by the World Health Organization ( WHO ) and the United Nations Foodand Agriculture Organization ( FAO ) .

Calcium propionate has a wide range of antibacterial effects on molds , yeasts and bacteria . It is harmless to humans and animals , and has notoxic side effects.

Calcium propionate is easy to be mixed with flourevenly. As a preservative, it can provide necessary calcium for human body andstrengthen food. Calcium propionate is a new food preservative developed in China in recent years.

Compared with Sodium benzoate, it has strongeranti-corrosion ability and is safer. Its preservative and preservation effect makes it widely used as preservative and preservation of breads, pastries,cakes, fruits and pastries.

Application of Calcium Propionate

  1. It can be used as a fungicide for foods and feedstuffs, and it is used as a preservative for breads and cakes. Calcium propionate is easily mixed with the flour, and it can provide the necessary calcium for the body while serving as a preservative for preservatives. It also serves to strengthen the function of food.
  2. It has inhibitory effect on mold and aerobic bacillus which can cause sticky material in bread, and has no inhibitory effect on yeast.
  3. It is effective in mold, aerobic Bacillus, gram-negative bacteria, aflatoxin, etc. in starch, protein and oils, and has unique anti-mildew and anti-corrosion properties.
  4. As a feed additive, it can effectively inhibit moldy feed and prolong the shelf life of feed. If it is used in combination with other inorganic salts. it can also increase the appetite of livestock and increase milk production of dairy cows. Calcium propionate has low volatility, high temperature resistance and good animal adaptability and is suitable for a variety of feed applications.
  5. In addition, Calcium propionate can also be used as an additive to toothpastes and cosmetics, and plays a good antiseptic effect.

Is Calcium Propionate Harmful to Human Body?

Calcium propionate is generally not harmful to people. Calcium propionate is a white powder or monoclinic crystal. It is soluble in water, slightly soluble in ethanol and methanol, and insoluble in acetone and benzene. It can be used as a food preservation, cosmetic preservative, and medical treatment, and is harmless to humans.

Calcium propionate is an acidic food antifungal agent. It is a safe and reliable antifungal agent for food and feed that has been approved for use. It has stable quality and can effectively inhibit mold, thereby extending the shelf life of food.

It can be used in bread to extend the shelf life of bread without affecting the appearance and taste of the bread. It can be used in cakes to extend the shelf life of cakes. It can also be used in soy products to extend the shelf life.

At the same time, calcium propionate can be used as a cosmetic preservative and can also be used in medical treatment to treat skin diseases caused by mold and for disinfection and sterilization. Therefore, calcium propionate is harmless to humans.
