Calcium propionate is a safe and reliable fungicide for food and feed approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and FAO. Calcium propionate, like other fats, can be metabolized and absorbed by humans and animals, providing them with essential calcium.And is generally regarded as GRAS.Calcium propionate can also be used as an additive in toothpaste and cosmetics to play a good antiseptic role
Used for bread; Preservatives for pastries and cheeses and fungicides for feed.
As a preservative for food, calcium propionate is mainly used in bread, because sodium propionate increases the pH value of bread and delays the fermentation of dough.
Sodium propionate is commonly used in pastries because the leavening of pastries is done using synthetic leavening agents without yeast development problems caused by pH rise. The effect of sodium propionate is better than calcium propionate when it is used as preservative for feed.
But calcium propionate is more stable than sodium propionate. Propionate is used in food except bread; Pastry. Besides cheese, it can also be used to prevent mildew and inhibit the refermentation of soy sauce. In medicine, propionate can be made into powder; Solutions and ointments treat diseases caused by parasitic dermatids.
The ointment (liquid) contains 12.3% sodium propionate and the powder contains 15% calcium propionate.
