Calcium Propionate - Dovative Pion




Calcium propionate is the calcium salt of propionic acid that is commonly used as a food preservative in bread, other baked goods, processed meat, whey, and other dairy products. It can extend the shelf life of food and feed products by interfering with the growth of microorganisms such as mold and bacteria. It is also used in agriculture as a food supplement and to prevent milk fever in a cow. Milk fever is a calcium deficiency disease that commonly occurs after calving. This will have an impact on decreasing milk production, reproductive performance, and others.




Calcium Propionate is approved for use by YANG and FAO for safe food and use in feed acid- based preservatives. Under acidic conditions, so that free acid has an antibacterial effect. Calcium Propionate can be absorbed through metabolism and supply the necessary calcium for humans and animals, this advantage cannot be compared with other fungicides.

Food industry

  1. Can be used to extend the shelf life of bread to be longer. It works by interfering with the growth and reproduction of mold and others microorganisms. Other advantages using calcium propionate is no impact on taste and flavor and harmless to human health.
  2. Can be used as adhesive, moisturizing and clarifying agent, filling agent, emulsifier, polishing agent and thickening stabilizer in the food industry; As a functional oligosaccharide, it can reduce cholesterol, enhance the body's immunity, enhance disease resistance and infection resistance, especially strong anti-tumor effect. Due to rich and high resources
  3. Can be used in vegetables, meat products, seafood, starch, soybeans, eggs, dairy and peanut products. After selecting fruits and vegetables, due to physiological influence their maturity will soften, leading to a decrease in hardness which brings difficulties for transportation, quality and nutritional value decrease and resistance to bacteria is also weakened.


Agriculture industry

Supplement and to prevent milk fever in a cows. Milk fever is a disease that occurs in cows after calving, where Ca levels in the body decrease so will impact to decreasing milk production, reproductive performance, and others. Calcium propionate provides essential calcium to mammals.
