Silicon Dioxide is found mainly in plants and the earth’s crust, as well as in humans and other animals. As a food additive, there is still no proof that silicon dioxide is dangerous.
In the food industry, SiO2 is used as an additive and anti-caking agent. This can help a product last longer, keep it dry, as well as prevent powdered additives from sticking together, allowing them to flow easily.
It can be used as a product ingredient to improve hardness, toughness, strength, and performance.
High-quality silica manufactured by American Tripoli adds value and consistency when used as an additive.
