Features of Food Grade Phosphoric Acid
It is in colorless, transparent or slightly light color thick liquid. It is odorless and tastes very sour. Phosphoric acid has the melting point of 42℃ and the boiling point of 261℃. It dehydrates gradually when it is heated. It belongs to RO-PO and the crystallization point is 21℃. Like other liquid crystallization, phosphate crystallization is physical changes rather than chemical changes. So its chemical property won’t change because of crystallization. It can be used normally as long as it is heated to melt.
Food grade phosphoric acid has the features of high concentration, high purity and high crystallinity. When the temperature is around 4℃ and the concentration is larger than 85%, the crystallinity will increase. If the chemical is accidentally mixed with crystalline phosphoric acid, the original phosphoric acid that hasn’t crystallized will be crystallized immediately and the phosphoric acid in storage container will be crystallized abnormally rapidly. After the phosphoric acid crystallizes, the upper phosphoric acid becomes dilute and the needle-like crystal pure phosphoric acid food grade is deposited in the lower part.
What is Phosphoric Acid Uses in Food
Phosphoric acid uses in drinks. It has the performance of buffering, which can adjust the PH value, make the taste of drinks stable, play a certain antiseptic effect. In the fermentation drink, it can also play the role of yeast nutrients.
Phosphoric acid food grade can be used as acidity regulator and nutrient agent for yeast, as well as used in flavors, canned food and light drinks. It can also be used as a nutrient source for yeast to prevent the reproduction of useless bacteria in wine brewery. It can be used to clean the sugar production equipment, for that it can have chemical reaction with sugar.
Used in medicine. Phosphoric acid is an important ingredient in the counter medications to combat nausea. Mixed with zinc powder and form zinc phosphates to be applied in dentistry.
Food Grade Phosphoric Acid Manufacturing Process
The production of food grade phosphoric acid is usually adopts thermal production process, which can produce the pure phosphoric acid with less metal and impurities. The process of thermal phosphoric acid mainly uses the yellow phosphorus produced by electrothermal process as raw material, then through combustion and hydration, and make phosphoric acid 85 food grade.
