Grace has created an audio and visual nutraceuticals brochure based on new study results.

Click here to hear how SYLOID® FP silica excipients offer proven superior performance!

Regardless if in bulk or powdered form, keeping food products from caking during processing and storage is critical to providing a quality product to your customer.

 

SYLOID® and PERKASIL® silicas can act as anti-caking and free-flowing agents and serve the following functions:

  • Prevent clumping​
  • Maintain free-flow behavior
  • Improve process ability and homogeneity
  • Control moisture
  • In general extend the shelf life of powdered feed products and ingre​dients

 

PERKASIL® Silicas

Compliant with the test requirements for silicon dioxide as described in the latest editions of the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC), the European Directive 2008/84/EC for E 551, Japan's Specifications and Standards for Food Additives (D325) and the Chinese National Standard HG 2791-1996 Class III. PERKASIL® Anti-Caking Agents have a broad application portfolio in the consumer and agriculture markets and mainly serve as: anti-caking and free flow agents for food/feed additives and nutrients as well as dietary minerals and salts, liquid carrier and free-flow aid for vitamins, cosmetics, flavors and fragrances, edible oils and fats and antioxidants and anti-caking and processing aid for all kind of agricultural products. A flavorless and odorless synthetic amorphous silica appearing as a white free flowing powder, it is available in a range of grades to meet a variety of formulation requirements.

SYLOID® Silica Excipients

Compliant with the test requirements for silicon dioxide as described in the latest editions of the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC), the latest edition of Japan's Specifications and Standards for Food Additives (D326) and European Directive 96/77/EC (monograph E551). SYLOID® silica excipients are recommended as general purpose, high performance anti-caking, free-flow, and carrying agents for food and industrial applications. A combination of high pore volume with a large internal surface area makes them extremely efficient for these applications. SYLOID® silica excipients have a strong affinity for moisture and also for organic based liquids. A flavorless and odorless synthetic amorphous silica appearing as a white free flowing powder, it is available in a range of grades to meet a variety of formulation requirements.
