calcium chloride
  • Calcium chloride is a common food additive that is used in the culinary industry for various purposes. Here are some culinary usages for calcium chloride:
  • Cheese-making: Calcium chloride is often added to milk when making cheese to help coagulate the proteins and create a firmer curd. It can also help improve the yield of cheese and prevent it from becoming too soft or rubbery.
  • Canning: Calcium chloride can be used in the canning process to help maintain the texture of fruits and vegetables. It can also help prevent the fruits and vegetables from becoming too soft or mushy.
  • Meat processing: Calcium chloride is sometimes used in meat processing to improve the texture and juiciness of the meat. It can also help extend the shelf life of processed meats.
  • Pickling: Calcium chloride can be added to pickling brine to help keep pickles crisp and crunchy.
  • Molecular gastronomy: Calcium chloride is used in some modernist cooking techniques, such as spherification, to create spheres or gels out of liquids. When added to a liquid containing sodium alginate, calcium chloride forms a gel around the liquid, creating a unique texture and presentation.
  • Brewing: Calcium chloride is sometimes added to brewing water to adjust the mineral content and pH of the water. This can help improve the flavor and clarity of beer.
  • Fruit and vegetable processing: Calcium chloride can be added to fruits and vegetables during processing to help maintain their texture and firmness. It can also help prevent browning and discoloration.
