Calcium propionate is white light flake crystals, or white granules or powder. Slightly special smell, easy to be deliquescent in humid air. Monohydrate salt is colorless monoclinal plate crystal. Soluble in water, slightly soluble in ethanol. It has a wide range of antibacterial effects on mold, yeast and bacteria, etc. It can be used as a preservative in bread and cakes. The lower pH value is, the higher the preservative effect is. Calcium propionate is virtually nontoxic to humans.
Calcium propionate, a new food additive, is a safe and reliable mildew repellent for food and feed approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and FAO. Calcium propionate has a wide range of antibacterial effects on mold, yeast and bacteria.
1. Calcium propionate can be used as mildew inhibitor for food and feed, and as preservative for bread and cakes. Calcium propionate is easy to mix with flour evenly, as a preservative, it can provide the necessary calcium for human body and play the role of fortifying food.
2. Calcium propionate has inhibitory effect on mold and good air bacillus which can cause bread to produce mucilaginous material, but has no inhibitory effect on yeast.
3. It is effective in starch, protein and oil substances against mold, aerophilic spore producing bacteria, gram-negative bacteria, aflatoxin, etc., and has unique anti-mold and anti-corrosion properties.
4. It is a new safe, efficient and broad-spectrum mildew inhibitor for food, brewing, feed and traditional Chinese medicine preparation.
5. Calcium propionate, as a feed additive, can effectively inhibit feed mildew and prolong feed storage life. If combined with other inorganic salts, it can also improve the appetite of livestock and increase the milk yield of cows. Calcium propionate has low volatility, high temperature resistance, good animal adaptability and is suitable for use in a variety of feeds.
6. Calcium propionate can also be used as an additive in toothpaste and cosmetics, which has a good anticorrosive effect.
7. A new feed additive, which is mainly used as mildewproof agent, can extend the fresh-keeping period of feed. To mold, good air bud producing bacteria, gram-negative bacteria have a good control effect, can also inhibit the production of aflatoxin, but not harmful to yeast, harmless to human and animal, non-toxic side effects. It can also be used as a food preservative.
