Activated Carbon Used In Food Industry

Food grade activated carbon is mainly used for decolorization of MSG, beverages, food additives, citric acid decolorization.

The main purpose of food grade activated charcoal using in food is to remove the pigment and its precursor material, adjust the fragrance, deodorize, remove the colloid, remove the material that hinders the crystallization and improve the stability of the product. Such decolorizing carbon is widely used in liquid adsorption, such as sugar industry, beverage industry, chemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, oil industry, printing and dyeing industry, environmental protection industry and other fields. Especially for the food industry sweeteners, such as Gan Su sugar, beet sugar, starch sugar, lactose, molasses, xylose, xylitol, maltose, glucose and hydrolyzed protein solution bleaching, in addition to glial. Food Grade Charcoal is also widely for drink industry such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi, food additives, preservatives, saccharin, monosodium glutamate, citric acid, pectin, gelatin, flavor spices, activated clay and so on. Chemical pharmaceutical intermediates, cystine, acid glycerol, itaconic acid, fluorescent whitening agent, gallic acid, decolorine and other products decolorization, to smell, especially for macromolecular pigment adsorption, to color more effective.
