Food applications

A gift from Mother Nature, phosphates are naturally present in most foodstuffs, as well as in certain rocks formed by slow sedimentation.

Phosphates are essential to the growth and health of all living creatures and are the building blocks for our DNA, bones, teeth, cells and nervous system. They are useful to many biological processes, regulate our body's acidity, help vitamin absorption, prevent fat deposits in our arteries and also enable our muscles to contract when we move.

In the agri-food industry, phosphates are a valuable aid and enable consumers to be offered high-quality finished products which are both nutritious and attractive (in terms of taste, smell, appearance and touch).
