Feed Application

Precipitated silica food grade is physiologically inert. It has excellent chemical stability. And does not accumulate in human body. It has been widely used in the food and medicine. Food grade silica can prevent caking problem in food products. Caking usually is due to moisture absorption, or formed under pressure. Silica is of strong adsorption performance, being an excellent flow promoting agent.
