So, what is óxido de calcio?

Óxido de calcio, also known as lime or quicklime, is a white crystalline powder obtained from the calcination of limestone. It has a strong alkaline taste and is highly reactive with water, producing heat and slaked lime. In the food industry, it is commonly used as a food additive for its ability to regulate acidity, act as a clarifying agent, and improve the texture and flavor of products such as tortillas, corn chips, and pickles. However, caution must be taken when handling óxido de calcio as it can cause severe burns or irritation if it comes into contact with skin or eyes.
