Food Processing

Calcium chloride is used as a food additive as well as in food processing operations. Treatment with food grade calcium chloride helps extend the shelf life of a wide variety of food products while maintaining desirable texture and flavor properties. It is used in salt processing to add a salty taste to pickles and other foods without increasing sodium content. Spraying fruit and vegetables with calcium chloride increases firmness and shelf life. The levels of nutritional calcium in frozen fruit and vegetables can be enhanced by processing with calcium chloride. Additional food processing applications include meat tenderization, as a refrigerant in the manufacture of ice cream and frozen foods, reducing oil consumption and darkening of French fries, and more.
