    Food Additives

    United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) Joint Food Regulation Committee: Food additives are non-nutrients that are intentionally added to foods generally in small amounts to improve the appearance, flavor, organizational structure, or storage properties of the food. EU: Food additives refer to any substances that are artificially added to food for technical purposes during the production, processing, preparation, handling, packaging, transportation or storage of food. United States: Food additives refer to substances that are intentionally used, cause or expect to cause them to become food ingredients or affect food characteristics directly or indirectly. China: Food additives refer to artificial or natural substances added to food for the purpose of improving food quality and color, aroma and taste, as well as for the needs of antisepsis, preservation and processing.

    Food Antioxidants

    Food antioxidants are food additives that can prevent or delay food oxidative deterioration, improve food stability, and extend shelf life. There are currently more than 150 compounds available as antioxidants. However, food antioxidants require rigorous toxicological testing, and few of them can really be used as antioxidants. Mainly include free radical absorbers, enzyme antioxidants, oxygen scavengers, metal ion chelating agents. "Antioxidants" on Echemi mainly supplies chemical raw materials for food antioxidants.

    Leavening Agent

    The leavening agent is added to the baked food mainly made of wheat flour, and is decomposed by heat during the process, generating gas, causing the dough to rise, forming a dense porous structure, so that the product is bulky, soft or crisp Substance. It is usually used in the process of making baked goods such as pastries, biscuits, bread, buns, etc., which is mainly based on wheat flour, to expand its volume and loose structure. The leavening agent can be divided into three categories: inorganic leavening agent, organic leavening agent and biological leavening agent. "Leavening Agent" on Echemi mainly supplies raw materials for leavening agents.


    Sweeteners refer to food additives that can give soft drinks a sweet taste. Sweeteners can be divided into nutritive sweeteners and non-nutritive sweeteners according to their nutritional value; according to their sweetness, they can be divided into low sweetness sweeteners and high sweetness sweeteners; according to their sources Divided into natural sweeteners and synthetic sweeteners. "Sweeteners" on Echemi mainly supplies raw materials for sweeteners.
