Cas no.: 83-86-3
Synonyms: Inositol hexaphosphoric acid
C6H18O24P6 Molecular Weight: 660.04
The appearance of Phytic acid is colorless to pale yellow viscous liquid. Phytic acid contains 12 acid groups which are able to complex with metals to form white insoluble mineral salts. Phytic acid is easily soluble in water and 95% ethanol slightly soluble in pure ethanol, almost insoluble in pure ether and hexane. Phytic acid exists naturally in form of phytin.

Phytic acid is used in various industries as antioxidant, preservative, stabilizer, developing agent, contrast agent, oral cleansing agent, fermentation promoter, water treatment agent, anti-rust anti-corrosion agent for metals, coating additive, gathering agent for rare earth and precious metals, high molecular solvent, fuel anti-knock agent and chelating agent for removal of metal ions. For example, usages in food processing:
Add 0.02-0.05% to improve color of canned foods, soft drinks and milk drinks.
Add 0.01-0.05% to shorten fermentation time and improve color and scent.
Residue allowed in end food products should NMT 0.02%.
25kg in polyethene drum(270x270x390), or as order.
Keep away from light and hot.
