So, what is dióxido de silício?

Dióxido de silício, also known as silicon dioxide, is a naturally occurring compound commonly used as an anti-caking agent in food production. It is composed of oxygen and silicon atoms arranged in a crystalline structure. This odorless and tasteless powder is insoluble in water and has a high melting point, making it ideal for use in high-temperature food processing. Dióxido de silício is generally regarded as safe by regulatory agencies, and its use in food products helps to ensure consistent quality and prevent clumping or sticking. While it is not a nutrient, this ingredient plays an important role in maintaining the texture and appearance of many processed foods.
