Calcium propionate
Synonyms: Calcium propanoate
Chemical Formula: (CH3CH2COO)2Ca
Molecular weight: 186.22.
Description: propionate is an organic formed by the reaction of calcium hydroxide with propionic acid (also known as propanoic acid) and it is a white crystalline granules or powder, odorless or slight odor of propionic acid, it is soluble in and only very slightly soluble in.Melting point:300 oC, water solubility :1g/10 mL at normal temperature, Which complies with the specifications of HG2922-1999, FCCVI and for food additives
Uses: Calcium propionate is used as a preservative in a wide variety of products, including but not limited to bread, other baked goods, processed meat, whey, and other dairy products. In agriculture, it is used, amongst other things; to prevent in cows and as a feed supplement, Propionates prevent microbes from producing the energy they need, like benzoates do. However, unlike benzoates, propionates do not require an acidic environment.
Advantage: Calcium propionate is used as a food preservative in breads and other baked goods because of its ability to inhibit the growth of molds and other.It is not toxic to these organisms, but does prevent them from reproducing and posing a health risk to humans.Propionic acid occurs naturally in some foods and acts as a preservative in those foods. Some types of cheese, for example, contain as much as 1% natural propionic acid.To minimize the inhibitory effect of calcium propionate, bakers can choose to add this preservative to the dough at the mixing stage rather than the preferment stage.Studies indicate that calcium propionate is one of the safest food additives used by the food industry. fed a diet containing nearly 4% calcium propionate for a year showed no ill effects. As a result, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has placed no limitations on its use in foods. In addition to baked goods, it is commonly used as a preservative in chocolate products, processed cheeses, and fruit preserves. The tobacco industry has also used calcium propionate as a preservative in some of its products.Beyond its role as a food additive, calcium propionate finds some application in the manufacture of butyl rubber. Adding it to the raw product makes it easier to process the rubber and protects the rubber from scorching during manufacture.
