Usage of Calcium Propionate
 As a food additive, it is listed as E number 282 in the Codex Alimentarius. Calcium propionate is used as a preservative in a wide variety of products, including but not limited to bread, other baked goods, processed meat, whey, and other dairy products.
 In agriculture, it is used, amongst other things, to prevent milk fever in cows and as a feed supplement
 Propionates prevent microbes from producing the energy they need, like benzoates do. However, unlike benzoates, propionates do not require an acidic environment.
 Calcium propionate is used in bakery products as a mold inhibitor, typically at 0.1-0.4%
 Calcium propionate can be used as a pesticide.
Calcium Propionate can inhibit growth of some individual molds and bacteria and is widely used in grain productssuch as bread to inhibit molds and prolong product shelf life. In addition, it is used to prevent other products from
deterioration resulted from microorganisms. Compared with other bacteria killers, it is non-toxic and lowin cost, and thus is widely used in wines, cakes, fruit jam, bean products, chocolate, cheese and western style meal. It is never harmful to health and has a remarkable effect in anti-mold.
Storage & Transport of Calcium Propionate:
