It is a salt that is solid at room temperature, and it behaves as a typical ionic halide. Mainly used as a setting agent for tofu production but finding use as an electrolyte provider for sports applications.

Calcium Chloride use in Food
The main function for calcium chloride in food production is as a firming agent. Firming agents aid in turning liquids into solids some well known examples are tofu and cheese manufacture. Due to the chloride part of this product it can be used as an additive to pickling brine without loading up the solution with unwanted sodium. The use rate of Calcium Chloride in food manufacture is relatively small so this 4Kg bag is ideal for small scale food manufacturers.
 

Calcium Chloride use in other non food applications
It has several common non food applications such as brine for refrigeration plants, aquarium water stabilisation, ice and dust control on roads, and in cement. It can be produced directly from limestone, but large amounts are also produced as a by-product of the Solvay process.
