Calcium Carbonate

Are you in search of a trusted supplier for premium calcium carbonate? Look no further than MegaChem (UK). We pride ourselves on delivering top-quality calcium carbonate, backed by our commitment to excellence, innovation, and customer satisfaction.

Applications

              Dairy & Non-Dairy Drinks

We offer a range of high-purity natural Calcium Carbonates, which are an excellent choice for fortifying dairy and non-dairy drinks. Specifically selected particle sizes and surface properties for slower sedimentation & easy re-dispersion. Thanks to its tailored particle size and outstanding high-purity, dairy and non-dairy drinks enriched with natural Calcium Carbonate convince not only with a pleasant mouthfeel and a great taste, but also with exceptional opacity and whiteness.

              Cereals & Snacks

A crisp sensation and a calcium boost. Pure enjoyment is no longer the only need that consumers have when it comes to snacking. The role of snack products is expanding and snacks are increasingly serving as a meal replacement. Simple ready-made food solutions that offer indulgence are flying off the shelves.

              Confectionery

Confectionery products are mostly rich in sugar, much of it usually in the form of a sugar coating. However, today’s consumers are becoming more health conscious and mindful of their dietary choices. Fortunately Calcium Carbonate can be formulated into sugar coatings such as royal icing, fat glazing or vanilla frosting that reduce sugar content and allow for calorie reductions.

              Baked Goods

Improving the performance of baked goods. As real allrounders, these minerals not only offer health benefits such as increasing calcium content, reducing acrylamide and powder caking, they also have tailored properties that simplify production processes and improve the formulations of baked products such as bread, tortilla and cake.

              Infant Nutrition

Naturally sourced with the highest purity we can offer a range of products that are suitable for the use in infant formulas. It is our recommendation for use in 100% natural food applications with adding benefits from anticaking agent to food fortification.
