Food/Beverage 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. Because of this, HuberCal® 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
- Fortified Beverages
- Cookies & Crackers
- Soups & Sauces
- Food Processing
