Microtalc is a hydrated magnesium silicate with the chemical formula Mg3Si4O10(OH)2. Talc performs a number of functions in food products. Our talc mineral in food is inert and passes through the body without being digested. It is approved as a carrier for the food industry and serves as an excellent process aid as anti-caking. Upon request the food grades can be heat treated.
The talc grade needed for a production depends on the end formulation and the desired achieved results. We advise you to contact our sales team for a personal product recommendation. Among other properties talc can be suitable as a separating agent in products such as; rice, powdered dried foods, seasonings, cheese, sausage skins and table salt.
