Calcium Chloride is a type of salt which is composed of Calcium and Chlorine ions. Calcium Chloride granules are white and odorless. It is usually found as a hydrated solid with the general chemical formula of CaCl2.x(H2O) where x is equal to 0, 1, 2, 4 and 6. As an example, anhydrous Calcium Chloride has a molecular mass of 110.98 g/mol.

Edible Calcium Chloride is usually dry which is also known as the anhydrous type. It is produced with 96% purity. Edible Calcium Chloride has medicinal and food applications. Moreover, it can be utilized in the production of animal foods.

Calcium Chloride is highly soluble in water and considered a hygroscopic substance. It extremely absorbs moisture; therefore, it is widely known as a desiccant – induce and sustaining a state of dryness. When dissolved in water, it produces a clear, colorless solution. The process of dissolving Calcium Chloride in the aqueous environment is exothermic due to its high enthalpy characteristic. Calcium Chloride salt is a source of Calcium ions which is excellent to be used in the substitution chemical reactions as it easily replaces other cations.

Calcium Chloride is insoluble in ammonia, dimethyl sulfoxide and ethyl acetate. Moreover, it is soluble in alcohol, pyridine and methanol.

Advantages of food grade Calcium Chloride

From Physiological prospective, Calcium Chloride is very helpful for human body. As it breaks down into Calcium and Chloride ions in human body, Calcium has a positive effect on the nervous system, muscles and bones. Also, Chlorine ions regulate the pH balance of the blood and help control the fluid level of human body. Food grade Calcium Chloride can replenish minerals which is lost through exercising and sweating.
It is worth mentioning, Calcium Chloride is approved by the World Health Organization and is safe to be used in foods.


As Calcium Chloride easily absorbs water, it must be stored carefully in dry area. It is recommended to be extremely careful when working with Calcium Chloride, as it can cause health and safety risks. Calcium Chloride 78% must be prevented from spreading in the environment and infiltrating the soil, water and sewage channels. Please refer to TEAM MSDS for further details on Calcium Chloride information.
