Calcium Carbonate (Natural Type)
Calcium Carbonate is a white powder found in nature in mineral sources such as calcite, limestone and marble. It adds color to foods and firming properties to vegetables. It is insoluble in water but may be emulsified to disperse in water. It may be produced by the precipitation of calcium ions with carbonate ions. The European Union (EU) has approved calcium carbonate as a food coloring. Some other regions do not allow its use as a color additive.
