What are Food Ingredients?
A food ingredient is any substance that is added to a food to achieve a desired effect. The term “food ingredient” includesfood additives, which are substances added to foods for specific technical and/or functional purposes during processing, storage or packaging.
There are two types of food additives—direct and indirect. Direct food additives are used in foods to impart specific technological or functional qualities. For example, stabilizers are used to help prevent separation of nutrients in fortified milk products, while phosphates are used as a leavening agent in baked goods. Indirect additives are not intentionally added to food, but may be present in trace amounts as a result of processing, packaging, shipping or storage.
Both direct and indirect food additives are controlled by national regulatory authorities, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Any food ingredient must be proven safe to be used in foods.
Food ingredients provide convenience and allow food makers to produce a wide variety of foods that are safe, appetizing, uniform, nutritious and tasty. They are used in very small quantities, but contribute significantly to our vast and varied food supply—ensuring that the foods we love look, taste and feel the way we have come to expect.
Food ingredients are used for a variety of reasons:
To support nutrition delivery
To maintain product quality and freshness
To prevent spoilage during transport, storage and sale
To make foods more appealing and ensure that familiar foods have consistent qualities
To extend shelf-life and prevent food waste
To make some foods more affordable
To aid in the processing and preparation of foods

1. It has the properties of adsorption, condensation and precipitation. It is mainly used for sewage treatment, wastewater treatment, drinking water treatment, circulating water treatment and production water treatment. The utility model has the advantages of small dosage and low cost. It is one of the commonly used water treatment agents in the water treatment industry. Of course, the effect is better when combined with polyacrylamide.more
1. Weigh about 2.5G (about 0.0002g) of solid polyaluminium chloride sample, put it into a 250ml beaker (add an appropriate amount of water to the beaker first), completely dissolve it, completely transfer it into a 250ml volumetric flask, dilute it to the scale, shake it well and dry filter it (medium speed qualitative filter paper, conical flask and funnel used for filtration are dried). The filtered liquid is called test solution a.more
1. The raw materials used in the metal aluminum process are mainly aluminum scraps, aluminum ash and aluminum slag. The process can be divided into acid method, alkali method and neutralization method.more
The structural characteristics of polyaluminium chloride determine the characteristics of the product. The so-called polyaluminium chloride is composed of a series of inorganic polymer compounds with different degrees of polymerization, with good morphological distribution. It is a high charge polymerization ring chain shape with Keggin structure, has high degree of electric neutralization and bridging effect on colloids and particles in water, and can remove micro poisons and heavy metal ions with stable properties, The negative charge carried by the colloidal particles is neutralized instantaneously in water to destabilize the colloid, the colloidal particles coagulate rapidly, and further bridge to form flocs for rapid precipitation. The product has many characteristics:more
