    About Calcium Chloride: Calcium chloride is a calcium salt resulting from the combination of calcium and chlorine. It primarily used in the cheese making industry, but is also useful in other food industry applications. These include uses as an anti-caking agent, antimicrobial agent, pickling agent, firming agent, flavor enhancer, humectant, pH control agent, stabilizer, thickener and texturizer. It is highly soluble in water. In addition, iIt has applications as brine for refrigeration plants, ice and dust control on roads, and in cement. It can be produced directly from limestone, but large amounts are also produced from brine wells. Because of its hygroscopic nature, it must be kept in tightly-sealed containers.

    Calcium chloride is designated generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Because of its hygroscopic nature, anhydrous calcium chloride must be kept in tightly-sealed air-tight containers.
