NS-1040 is a straight blend of calcium propionate. This blend is effective at a pH range of 5.0-6.0. This blend allows for enhanced stability and increased shelf life.
NS-1040 is a deodorized preservative system that works against mold and rope bacteria up to a pH of 6.0. Calcium propionate being less soluble than sodium propionate, has less effect against chemical leavening agents, like yeast. Which makes this system ideal for use in yeast-leavened bakery products.
NS-1040DF is the same system except for making the calcium propionate a “dust free” product.
