Properties and performance:
Calcium propionate is white crystal or white crystalline powder or
granule, odourless or microstrip propionic acid odor.Used as food
additive calcium propionate as salt monohydrate, for water and
thermal stability, has the water absorbability, soluble in water,
l0 of 39.9 g/mL (20 ºC), insoluble in ethanol, ether.In 10% of the
calcium propionate aqueous solution to add the same amount of
dilute sulphuric acid, heating can release the special scent of
propionic acid.Calcium propionate alkaline, 10% of its water
solution pH value of 8 ~ 10.Anticorrosion performance of calcium
propionate and sodium propionate, same form propionic acid in acid
medium and bacteriostasis.The effective dose of calcium propionate
inhibitory relatively sodium propionate is small, but it can reduce
the effect of chemical leavening agent, substitutes sodium
propionate, however, its advantage lies in the pastry, bread and
cheese in the use of calcium in calcium propionate can supplement
food Lei.Calcium propionate can inhibit the dough fermentation
bacillus subtilis breeding, pH value of 5.0 minimum bacteriostatic
mass fraction is 0.01%, when the pH value of 5.8 to 0.188%, the
optimum pH value should be lower than 5.5.
By adding 1%, 3% and 6% calcium propionate feed rats with 180 d,
body quality is control group increased, the blood, guts, no
change.Calcium propionate rat oral LD50 of 3.34 g/kg.ADI does not
make the restrictive provisions.
Used for bread;Pastry and cheese preservation agent and feed mould
inhibitor.As a food preservative agent of propionic acid salt,
calcium propionate is mainly used in bread, because the ph of the
sodium propionate make bread rise, delay the fermentation;Because
the pastry multi-purpose sodium propionate, pastry bulk using
composite leavening agent, no pH rise developmental problems caused
by yeast.As a feed preservation agent, the effect of sodium
propionate is better than that of calcium propionate.But stable
than sodium propionate calcium propionate.Propionic acid salt in
food except for bread;Pastry.Cheese thereof, can also be used for
soy sauce mouldproof, inhibition of fermentation.In medicine,
propionate can be made into powder;Solution and ointment treatment
of skin disease caused by parasitic fungus.Ointment (liquid)
containing 12.3% sodium propionate, powder containing 15% calcium
By propionic acid and calcium hydroxide or calcium carbonate
reaction was: industry generally with calcium hydroxide as raw
materials, in the heart of the reaction pot into calcium hydroxide
slurry, join the propionic acid, reaction temperature 70-70 ºC, the
reaction of 2-3 hours, the reaction end point control the pH
7-8.The response filtering material;Drying for a quick finished
(1)Take 5 ml the sample solution (1 + 0) and 5 ml dilute sulphuric
acid (1 + 9) hot, have a special release of propionic acid smell.
(2) using the hydrochloric acid after wet platinum touched take
sample, in the colorless flame red, brick red color.
Calcium propionate is a new kind of food additive, is one of the
world health organization (WHO) and the United Nations food and
agriculture organization (FAO) approved the use of safe and
reliable food and feed mould inhibitor.Calcium propionate on mold,
yeast and bacteria has broad antibacterial effect.
1. Calcium propionate can be used as a food and feed mould
inhibitor, preservative agent for bread and cakes.Calcium
propionate is easy to be mixed with flour evenly, as a fresh
preservatives can provide essential calcium again at the same time,
have the effect of fortified foods.
2. Calcium propionate produce viscose silk material to mold and can
cause the bread of aerobic has inhibitory effect on bacillus, no
inhibitory effect on yeast.
3. In the starch, protein and fat material for mold, aerobic
bacteria and gram-negative bacteria, spores produced effectively
such as aflatoxin, has a unique mouldproof, anti-corrosion
4. Is made, feed, food and aspects of a new type of TCM with
safety, high efficiency, broad spectrum of food and feed mould
5. Calcium propionate as feed additives can effectively inhibit
feed mildew, extended shelf life, feed if cooperate with other
inorganic salt can increase the appetite of livestock, increase
milk production in cows.Calcium propionate volatile small, high
temperature resistant, animals, good adaptability, suitable for a
variety of feed use.
6. Calcium propionate is also can be used as toothpaste, cosmetics
additives, good antiseptic effect.
7. A new type of feed additives, mainly used as mould inhibitor,
which can lengthen the freshness of the feed.On the mold, aerobic
bud bacteria and gram-negative bacteria has good anti out effect,
also can inhibit the production of aflatoxin, and harmless to
yeast, harmless to human and animal, non-toxic side effects.Also
can be used as a food preservative.Calcium propionate chemical
safety manual (MSDS)
Storage:Store in a cool, dry place.Store in an airtight container.
Dispose:Thoroughly clean after operation.Wash your hands before
eating.Use with adequate ventilation conditions.Reduce dust
generation and accumulation.Avoid contact with skin and eyes.Avoid
eating and breathing.
(1) using a leavening agent unfavorable use calcium propionate,
because can be reduced due to the formation of calcium carbonate's
ability to produce carbon dioxide.
(2) for calcium propionate acid type preservatives, within the
scope of the acid works: pH5 to mold inhibitory effect best, below
pH6 bacteriostatic ability decreased obviously.
