Calcium Propionate is a white powder or crystal, is odorless, or
slightly smells propionic
acid, and stable to heat and light. It is highly hydroscopic, soluble inwater (50g/100ml) and insoluble in ethanol and ether. Under the acidic condition, it generates free propionic cid which has antibiotic effect.
Calcium Propionate can inhibit 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 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.
