Mineral Salts with Application in Food Industry
Mineral salts can be added to food in several ways. They can be utilized as enrichment factors for nutrients as well as functional added ingredients. Strict food laws must be complied with, while using the mineral salts.
Minerals Salts for Fortification
The minerals added for food fortification have a positive impact on health. Their goal is to provide consumers with the option to choose foods that are healthy and to consciously decide to receive particular minerals. Iron is a popular mineral that has been used extensively to fortify foods all over the world for a long time. Different governments have implemented iron consumption in state-sponsored programs to lower iron deficiency anemia in their populations.
For various food applications, we provide a variety of mineral salt types. To ensure safe handling and accurate dose, we synthesize trace elements that are only needed in trace amounts (such as selenium, chromium, and iodine). The trace element is found in these mixes in dilute form in an inert carrier material.
Minerals are in theory extremely stable throughout food manufacturing, unlike vitamins, which can react very sensitively to temperature and other process conditions.
