Food Grade Calcium Hydroxide Market

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

Market Overview

Calcium hydroxide is also termed as slaked lime, is a white powdery solid that is bitter in taste and basic in nature. Food grade calcium hydroxide is basically a white soft fine powder that has a bulk density of 0.5-0.8.

Food grade calcium hydroxide requires high standards and removes metals from food products by a sequence of refining practises to maintain the food standards as compared to industrial-grade of calcium hydroxide.

Calcium hydroxide has a range of application in various end-use industries; food grade calcium hydroxide is not only used as food ingredients, but also for the pharmaceuticals, animal feed, and biomaterials synthesis among others, because of its high-value standards.

The continuous growth of the food and beverage sector, the application of food grade calcium hydroxide is also increasing, as it is widely used as acidity regulators, high-tech biological material synthesis, and feed additives synthesis.

However, the food grade calcium hydroxide is also during the synthesis process of calcium lactate, calcium naphthenate, and calcium citrate among others. These are main aspects behind the surging demand for food grade calcium hydroxide across the globel.

Multi-Purpose Application of Food Grade Calcium Hydroxide Giving Impetus to Sales

Food grade calcium hydroxide is one of the inorganic compounds, with low toxicity, due to which it has a range of applications in the food industry.

Food grade calcium hydroxide is used in the sugar industry for refining the raw sugarcane and sugar beet juice, for processing water for soft drinks and alcoholic beverages, also used in pickles, and nixtamalization process of maize.

In addition to this, food grade calcium hydroxide is also used for the preparation of functional food and beverages. However, food grade calcium hydroxide is also being used to prepare infant food products such as milk. These multi-functional applications of food grade calcium hydroxide are driving the market across the globel.

Increasing Application of Food Grade Calcium Hydroxide in Fruit Drinks Fortification

During the production process of infant milk or fruit drinks, manufacturers use food grade calcium hydroxide for the calcium fortification in the product offerings. In brief, fruit drinks manufacturers are focusing on to increase the nutrition value of the products, to attract more numbers of consumers. This due to the rising popularity of fortified beverages among the consumers. These days, the changing dietary pattern and desk-bound life have created deficiencies of vital components of food. Hence, to fulfil the optimum nutritional value, the consumers are looking for healthy drinks. Calcium is one of the key elements, it makes bones strong and prevents fracture. Moreover, the food grade calcium hydroxide is important for the body as it regulates the homeostasis.

Abovementioned factors are creating opportunities for the manufacturers operating in food grade calcium hydroxide market along with the end-users (functional beverage companies). To gain an upper hand in the global market, they should introduce such kind of products to generate more revenue along with global business expansion.
