I have high quality calcium carbonate with over 99% of pure calcium carbonate and the PPM report is approved for all the other chemicals . and its GCC so i want to ask what is the required process to be accepted as food grade .

i know that i must have GMP , but the product from  the GCC is accepted ,so what anther process is needed ( heat , sieving,....) .

Thank you

Hi,

 

for the EU "food grade" requirements of a certain additives is given in regulation 1333/2008 and 1129/2011 together with the changing regulations followed over time.

Pls have a look on http://ec.europa.eu/...ement_agents_en. EU is providing a database for additives, requirements and restricted applications.

I presume PPM - the ppm level of contamination by  (???) heavy metals

 

But GCC no idea ? (I presume G = Greece or perhaps General, eg General Chemical Composition)

 

The typical answer is that assuming the item is a food ingredient (???) it will depend on the relevant local  (ie where to be consumed) Regulatory requirement for "food grade" ingredients/additives/etc.
