Lime product applications

  • 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.

Pcc product applications

In pharmaceutical products, SCHAEFER PRECAfood® is used as an excipient, for instance in tablets. In the dental hygiene sector, SCHAEFER PRECAfood® serves as a gentle cleaning agent.
