Calcium Acetate BP Ph Eur USP FCC Food Grade Manufacturers
The chemical compound calcium acetate is the salt of calcium and acetic acid. It has the formula Ca(C2H3O2)2. The anhydrous form is very hygroscopic; therefore the monohydrate (Ca(CH3COO)2•H2O, CAS [5743-26-0]) is the common form. It is used as a food additive, as a stabilizer, buffer and sequestrant, mainly in candy products. Calcium Acetate, (CH3COO)2Ca is used in food industry as a growth inhibitor for certain bacteria.
