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. This grade is highly pure, and its active surface is exceptionally large thanks to the extremely fine particles, this talc is especially lipophilic.
Our studies show that producers using our product can save 70% of the talc quantity compared to the conventional talcs from other manufacturers. Microtalc FC 8 can be used for oil extraction or used in the production process of liquid gum.
