Calcium phosphate is often used in food preparations for
infants and children. Prayon has developed a special range
designed to have the best possible nutritional profile and
to assist infant food designers in their formulations. All our
products comply with Commission Regulation (EU) 231/2012
laying down specifications for food additives including those
intended to be used in foods for infants and young children
By stabilising bonds between water and proteins,
phosphates make food appealing for cats and dogs. Purified
phosphoric acid and phosphates are used to modify proteins
in the development of desirable petfood flavors.
Purified phosphoric acid and various phosphate salts
act on starches. They are used in industrial starch
modification processes and to develop specific
properties. A recent application in this area is the
development of modified starch that is rich in soluble
fibre and therefore ideal for low-carb diets.
Calcium phosphates are used as polishing agents
and boost remineralisation potential. Sodium
phosphates prevent tartar from building up and
improve the whitening effect. Sodium fluoride is
used in dental products as a fluoride supplement.
