Agricultural Post-Harvest and Food Applications

Food grade calcium chloride products can be used for a variety of different food additive applications and for agricultural post-harvest.  This additive can help to preserve freshness, maintain firmness and prevent certain diseases and decay.  This application can also be beneficial for adding nutritional value to the food by increasing the calcium content.  The addition of calcium chloride during the agricultural post-harvest is also beneficial when canning fruits and vegetables or when processing dairy foods.  This additive may also be used during indirect food applications as well, such as low-temperature heat-transfer fluid processes in the following industries:
  • Brewing
  • Dairy and Ice Cream
