Application Calcium propionate is a new  kind of food additives, approved by WHO and FAO  as a safe
food and feed mildew inhibitor.Also a new, safe, efficient, broad-spectrum fungicide of food
and feed in brewing, food,feed,traditional chinese medicine etc.. Have widly  antibacterial
function  to mold and bacteria .
1. Used as food and feed mildew and as preservation agent in food and pastry.It can be easily
mixed with flour.At the same time of it plays the role of  preservative,it can provide essential
calcium, plays the role of fortifing foods.
2.Inhibit mold and  aerobic bacillus which will cause the bread produce sticky silk material,
but no inhibition on yeast.
3. Unique preservative and anti-enzyme agent of aerobic spore producing bacteria,
gram-negative bacteria, aflatoxin in starch, protein and oil-containing substances.
4. As feed additive can effectively inhibit mildew, extend the shelf life of feed ,can also raise
livestock appetite when combined with the other inorganic salts ,increase  milk production
