So, what is siliciumdioxid?

Siliciumdioxid, also known as silicon dioxide or colloidal silica, is a naturally occurring mineral that is widely used in the food industry as an anti-caking agent, thickener, and stabilizer. This ingredient is made up of tiny particles that are highly porous and absorbent, making it effective in preventing clumping or sticking in food products. Siliciumdioxid is also commonly used in the production of supplements and medicines due to its ability to bind with other substances and improve absorption. It is considered safe for consumption in moderate amounts and is often derived from natural sources such as quartz or sand.
