So, what is silicato de calcio?

Silicato de calcio, also known as calcium silicate, is a food ingredient that is widely used as an anti-caking agent, a thickening agent, and a stabilizer. It is a white, odorless powder that is made by combining calcium oxide and silica in a specific ratio. Silicato de calcio has a unique ability to absorb moisture, which makes it an ideal additive for dry food products like spices, flour, and powdered drinks. It also helps to prevent clumping, enhance flowability, and increase shelf life. Silicato de calcio is safe for human consumption and has been approved by regulatory agencies around the world.
