Food Grade Calcium Carbonate Market

Food Grade Calcium Carbonate Market : Global Industry Analysis 2015 - 2019 and Opportunity Assessment 2020 - 2030

Market Overview

Calcium carbonate is one of the vital chemicals that are widely used in several end-use industries. It is naturally sourced from the earth’s crust and has a molecular formula that is CaCo3.

There are several forms of calcium carbonate that occurs naturally by sedimentation of shellfish, Snell and corals. Calcium carbonate offers various health beneficial properties that include, it supports eye & heart health, general wellbeing, digestive & immune health, and primarily bone health. In addition to this calcium carbonate also aids in weight management issues.

The food grade calcium carbonate is one of the specific types of calcium carbonates that are mostly used in the global food and beverage industry as per the need of vital molecules in food and beverage products.

Apart from that, food grade calcium carbonate also works as texture, flavour, and taste enhancers in food and beverage products. The food grade calcium carbonate is generally prepared from natural calcite, which is of 98% purity grade (high purity grade) of calcium carbonate.

Food grade calcium carbonate is prepared with very much whiteness with 94.5% whiteness. The food grade calcium carbonate improves the crispiness outcome of the calcium ion and pH.

Food grade calcium carbonate retains the capability to enhance the fluidity of products. Due to all these properties, the demand for food grade calcium carbonate is facing booming demand across the globel.

Versatile Nature of Food Grade Calcium Carbonate makes Convenient in Use for Moist Food and Beverage Products

Food grade calcium carbonate is manufactured in such a way that the major atoms of calcium atoms bind to both malate and citrate molecules simultaneously. This exclusive feature makes the food grade calcium carbonate 6-9 times more easily mixed inside the stomach than others.

Due to the higher solubility, the food grade calcium carbonate is significantly better absorbed as compared with the calcium citrate. Food grade calcium carbonate has been used effectively in many precise trials to lower the fracture risk and to upkeep the bone mass.

Several trials are convoluted a direct face-off among food grade calcium carbonate and other forms of calcium available in the market. Such trials provide that, food grade calcium carbonate is anticipated to increase its use due to its better bioavailability, food grade calcium carbonate provides a better defence to bones than other calcium sources. Hence, it is likely to increase its demand for Food grade calcium carbonate in the food & beverage sector.

Vegan Population are Expected to Boost the Market of Food Grade Calcium Carbonate

Vegetarian consumers tend to absorb less calcium than omnivores due to the consumption of more plant-based products comprising phytic and oxalic acids. However, Lacto-Ovo vegetarian population (who consume dairy and eggs) and non-vegetarian consumers have similar calcium consumptions. However, the vegan population, who doesn’t consume animal-based products and consumers who do not eat dairy products but eat eggs) might not get sufficient amount of calcium due to their avoidance of dairy-based food products.

Rendering to the Oxford cohort of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition article, the risk of bone fracture was related in fish eaters, vegetarians, and meat-eaters but higher in vegan consumers owing to their lower calcium consumption. These are the factors associated with food grade calcium carbonate, which are creating opportunities in the global market.
