Food Grade Magnesium Carbonate Application
Food Grade Magnesium carbonate is widely used as a food additive (food ingredients) to prevent caking and as a whitener in food processing applications. It’s also used as a demolding agent in the manufacturing of biscuits, as a carbonate source in soft drinks, as well as a source of magnesium in dietary supplements.
Heavy and Light Basic Magnesium Carbonate with densities in the range 0.1 g/cc to-0.5 g/cc are used as free-flowing agents, in leavening mixtures for industrial-scale baking and in pH control of food preparations. Products supplied from the DSP and Scora facilities.
Specialty Minerals BMC grades are
- manufactured under GMP conditions
- produced under HACCP process control
- in compliance with the requirements of USP, EP, FCC

Magnesium carbonate, also known as magnesite, is a naturally occurring mineral. It’s practically insoluble in water and insoluble in alcohol. It’s produced by mixing magnesium and carbonate ions under an atmosphere of carbon dioxide.
Magnesium is a mineral that is necessary for good health.
It’s important for many functions in the body including, regulating muscle and nerve function, blood sugar levels and blood pressure, as well as energy production and bone health.
In addition to its role in several bodily functions, magnesium has important roles as a food additive (food ingredients).
Magnesium carbonate is used as anti-caking agent in cooking salt and as demolding agent in the manufacture of biscuits. MgCO3 is used as carbonate source in soft drinks. In cattle feeds, the magnesium carbonate provides the magnesium required in the animal’s diet.
