Calcium Sulfate Dihydrate, CAS# 7778-18-9, is a Calcium salt of Sulphate manufactured through chemical synthesis, available as white powder. Calcium Sulfate Dihydrate is widely used as texture and flavour enhancer. It is affirmed by US FDA as GRAS(generally recognized as safe) and widely accepted as safe food additive in many countries with E number E516.
Ammonium bicarbonate is known to irritate the skin, eyes and respiratory system.
As Calcium Sulfate Dihydrate is widely known as safe, there is no limit on dosage of intake. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of Calcium Sulfate Dihydrate for long period.
Special groups refer to newborns, children, pregnant and any other applicable vulnerable groups.
There is no evidence that Calcium Sulfate Dihydrate could have any negative effects on these vulnerable groups. It should be safe to use Calcium Sulfate Dihydrate in food for newborns and pregnant. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of Calcium Sulfate Dihydrate for long period in food for newborns or pregnant.
Generally recognized as safe(GRAS) is a FDA designation that a specific substance or ingredient is generally considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements.
