So, what is zinc silicate?

Zinc silicate is a chemical compound that is commonly used in the food industry as a whitening agent, anti-caking agent, and as a source of zinc. It is a fine, odorless powder that is insoluble in water and has a neutral pH. Zinc silicate is also used in the production of ceramics, paints, and glass, due to its properties of heat resistance and durability. Its use in the food industry is regulated by organizations such as the FDA and EFSA to ensure its safety for human consumption. As an essential mineral, zinc is vital for various bodily functions, including immune system health and wound healing.
