What is calcium propionate ?

Sodium Propionate is a common food additive that is industrially manufactured but also occurs in nature. Since it is toxic to mold and some species of bacteria, it is an especially effective additive in baked goods or other products that are susceptible to spoilage.
Sodium propionate is an effective inhibitor of the growth of certain molds and some bacteria in bakery goods. It is usually preferred in non-yeast-leavened bakery products because the calcium ions’ of calcium propionate interfere with the chemical leavening agents. In those bakery products, such as cakes, tortillas, pie fillings, etc., chemically leaved agents are used (e.g. baking powder). sodium propionate is easy to handle and easy to incorporate into the flour. It is a safe compound when encountered at the low levels found in food.

Application of calcium propionate

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 in cows and as a feed supplement, Propionates prevent microbes from producing the energy they need, as benzoates do. However, unlike benzoates, propionates do not require an acidic environment.

Calcium Propionate can inhibit the growth of some individual molds and bacteria and is widely used in grain products such as bread to inhibit molds and prolong product shelf life. In addition, it is used to prevent other products from deteriorating resulting from microorganisms. Compared with other bacteria killers, it is non-toxic and low in cost and thus is widely used in wines, cakes, fruit jams, bean products, chocolate, cheese, and western-style meal. It is never harmful to health and has a remarkable effect in anti-mold.
