Food additives are used to improve food’s quality, color, smell and taste, as well as conserve the food. They typically include antioxidants, preservatives, bulking agents, food acids, etc. and are mainly applied to the processing, packaging and transporting of food. Along with the development of food industry, there is an increasing demand for food additives in wider application range. As part of the food safety problem, they are also gaining more and more attention globally.
We have been engaged in chemical food additives for more than 10 years. Our range of food chemicals has excellent quality, since we have got the ISO9001: 2000 certificate. Our main food additives include magnesium sulfate, citric acid, sodium bicarbonate and sodium metabisulfite. Specifically, due to the local resources advantage, our sodium metabisulfite and sodium bicarbonate products are becoming more and more famous.

In soft drinks, juice, and can, the citric acid monohydrate is used as acidifier, while it is also used in edible oil as an antioxidant. Besides, citric acid is also used in solid beverage.
