Calcium carbonate keeps our crispies dry. Literally. After all, who wants to have a bar with crispies where the crunch effect is missing? That’s right, nobody. And we at NEOH certainly do not. So thank you, calcium carbonate, and most of all your stabilizer property for giving us the crunch.
The substance has been classified as safe by the FDA, and therefore no ADI has been established for this compound.
