For fruit juices, beverages and sweets, the most added mineral is calcium. It is added because of its nutritional value, its solubility, its taste, its bio-availability and the added commercial value of a product "enriched with calcium".
The high purity and physiological safety of the SOCAL® grades make them suitable as a calcium source in foodstuffs, vitamin tablets or beverages. Besides, with their specific surface and associated high level of water absorption, SOCAL® grades are also used as anti-caking agents: for example, added to both rock salt and vacuum salt in the production of industrial and table salts.
Sodium Bicarbonate is an alkalizing substance which produces carbon dioxide when coming into contact with an acid. It is used in foodstuffs used to prepare pastries, cakes or sweets, and in beverages to produce the typical effervescent, fizzy soft drink effect.
The Interox® AG products are very low residue, stabilised hydrogen peroxide formulations especially developed for aseptic filling equipment.
The high purity of Interox® AG means that you can safely increase intervals between cleaning and reduce downtime of the machines as residue build-up on nozzles and heaters is minimised. With INTEROX® AG, you can easily boost productivity in both spray/vapour-type and bath/immersion-type filling systems.
Peracetic acid is an oxidising biocide with very rapid biocidal action at ambient or cold temperatures at relatively low concentrations. It has broad spectrum activity and is effective over a wide range of conditions. The activity of peracetic acid is relatively unaffected by organic contamination compared to some other oxidising biocides. Additionally it is very effective against biofilms and microbial slime and has therefore been the product of choice in Clean-In-Place (CIP) applications for many years.
