- Food additives
SCHAEFER PRECAfood® - calcium oxide and hydroxide - is an important precursor for food additives such as citric acid, lactic acid, phosphates and gluconates and is also used in the production of edible gelatin and leavening agents. Our products can therefore be found in foods as such, or as a raw material for producing calcium salts such as calcium phosphate, calcium propionate, calcium lactate, calcium citrate, etc., which are used as additives in many foods.
