About Sodium Chloride Crystal, FCC Grade
Sodium Chloride Crystal, FCC Grade from Lab Alley, is an inorganic chemical compound that meets the standards outlined in the Food Chemicals Codex (a compendium of internationally recognized standards for the identity, purity, and quality of food ingredients) and thanks to its high level of purity it is used in the food industry.
One of the main uses of Sodium Chloride, FCC Grade, is in the Food Industry. It adds flavor to food during cooking and food processing and performs as a food preservative, color developer, binding agent, texturizer, and fermentation-control agent. Salt aids in color development in processed meats like ham, hot dogs, sausage, and sauerkraut. Salt provides binding strength for processed meats by extracting myoﬁbrillar proteins. In foods, salt can dehydrate bacterial cells, alter osmotic pressure, and inhibit bacterial growth and food spoilage.
Sodium Chloride Crystal, FFC Grade, is used in different Food Industries. In cheese manufacture, salt is used to control fermentation and to control texture and ﬂavor. Pickles are preserved in strong brine before ﬁnal processing. In butter manufacturing, Sodium Chloride acts bacteriologically and chemically to keep the quality and ﬂavor of butter. Salt acts as a texture aid in bread and pastries by strengthening gluten in bread dough, providing uniform grain, texture, and dough strength. In baked goods, salt controls fermentation by slowing down yeast activity, preventing uncontrolled fermentation.
