So, what is oxyde de calcium?

Oxyde de calcium, also known as quicklime or burnt lime, is a white crystalline substance commonly used in the food industry as a food additive and processing agent. It is created by heating limestone to high temperatures, resulting in the release of carbon dioxide and the formation of calcium oxide. Oxyde de calcium has a high alkaline pH and is highly reactive with water, making it a useful ingredient for regulating acidity levels, aiding in the clarification of juices and syrups, and facilitating the removal of impurities during food processing. However, it must be used with caution due to its corrosive nature and potential health hazards if ingested or inhaled in large amounts.
