So, what is silica a?

Silica is a naturally occurring mineral that is commonly used in food as an anti-caking agent. Silica A, or amorphous silica, is a type of silica that is highly absorbent and has a fine particle size, making it an ideal ingredient for preventing clumping in powdered foods such as spices, baking mixes, and supplements. Additionally, silica A is often used in food processing as a flow aid, ensuring that ingredients move smoothly through machinery and preventing blockages. While silica A is generally considered safe for consumption, excessive intake may lead to digestive discomfort and potential long-term health effects.
