Our Anticaking/Releasing Agent Products

Anticaking agents are additives used in powdered and granulated materials, mainly table salt and confectionaries, to avoid caking and to ensure secure packaging, consumption, and transportation. The crystallization of water-soluble salts that bridge the gap between the surface of fertilizer particles is a common mechanism that causes the caking effect. United Foods understands the problem of clumping faced by farmers, storage companies, and transport agencies. Therefore, we supply the best anticaking agents that are long-lasting, easy to use, and economical.

Some of our available anticaking and releasing ingredients are listed below.

Starches

These polymeric carbohydrates can be used as a natural anticaking agent and are present in a huge amount of staple foods, such as corn and potatoes.

Silicone Emulsions

These hybrid organic/inorganic polymers feature properties such as low surface energy and high flexibility.

Calcium Stearate

This white, waxy, powdered calcium carboxylate is a component of lubricants, surfactants, and many foodstuffs.

Calcium Carbonate

A chemical compound that acts by neutralizing hydrochloric acid in gastric secretions, this agent is used as an antacid in nutritional supplements to treat hypocalcemia.

Anticaking agents function either by coating particles or by absorbing the excess moisture and making them water-repellent. Some anticaking agents are soluble in water, while others are soluble in alcohols or other organic solvents. A common anticaking agent like calcium silicate is added to table salt to absorb both water and oil. Anticaking agents have other uses as well, as they are popularly used in nonfood items such as road salt, fertilizers, and synthetic detergents.
