CC food® calcium chloride for improved cheese-making
CC food® calcium chloride increases coagulation of milk proteins and promotes a more controlled and stable cheese-making process. It also helps to elevate production yields, with less casein lost in the whey, and reduce overall rennet usage, thereby enhancing cost efficiency. Recognized for its high quality, CC food® products are widely used and well regarded across the food and beverage industry.
CC food® calcium chloride for better tasting beer
CC food® calcium chloride enhances the flavor, saltiness, and palate fullness of beer. It can also improve the quality of the brewing water, promote acidification of the wort, and help precipitate proteins. CC food® products are widely used by brewers of every size, from large multinational breweries to local microbreweries around the world.
CC food® calcium chloride for healthier drinking water
