Description of Calcium Propionate
Calcium Propionate is used as a preservative to extend the normal shelf life of food. It prevents mold and bacterial growth that would cause products to go bad and also contributes to the nutritional value of each product by acting as a source of calcium. In foods, Calcium propionate is used as a preservative, 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 milk fever 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.
Characteristics of Calcium Propionate:
Calcium Propionate is a white, crystal, solid substance. It is odorless in its natural state, but users may detect an odor when bread is hot; the odor will disappear once the bread cools down. It’s pH (10% solution) is 7.5-9.0. It is non-GMO and allergen free. Calcium Propionate dissolves well and is easy to blend into flour. It is stable under normal conditions and can be slightly hygroscopic in that it easily absorbs moisture.
