Talc mineral for Food
Talc is suitable for food products. Our talc mineral is inert and passes through the body without being digested. It is thus approved as a carrier for food colorings and as a separating agent in such products as rice, powdered dried foods, cheese, sausage skins or table salt. The hydrophobic talc particles attach themselves to those of the food, protecting them and preventing clumping.
Talc for Olive Oil Production
Virgin olive oil is usually obtained from a mechanical process at temperatures which do not lower the quality of oil. The separation of the solids from the oil and water can be complex as olives produce a lot of foam during the paste preparation. This causes an excess of fine solids to be present that act as a natural emulsifier for the oil droplets in the water. These natural emulsifiers retain some of the oil droplets in the water phase and thus reduce the amount of oil that can be extracted. One extensively used substance that solves this extraction problem is Microtalc FC8. Microtalc FC8 is the talc product from Mondo that has been specially tailored to make the extraction process of the olive oil as efficient as possible. Our Microtalc FC8 talc is also inert, which has a positive effect on the intrinsic properties of the paste and the characteristics of the olive and does not affect the flavor or the color in an adverse way. As such it improves both oil clarity and quality. Moreover, Microtalc FC8 gives a better oil quality with talc.
