Raw materials from MAGNESIA for food production

MAGNESIA — your reli­able and expe­ri­enced part­ner for high-qual­i­ty min­er­al raw mate­ri­als for the food indus­try. Inter­na­tion­al man­u­fac­tur­ers of baked goods, dairy prod­ucts, bev­er­ages and meat rely on our prod­ucts. In addi­tion to com­pounds based on mag­ne­sium and cal­ci­um, our range also includes com­pounds of sodi­um, potas­si­um and zinc as well as dis­solved solids. Our raw mate­ri­als meet the high­est food safe­ty stan­dards, includ­ing the require­ments of the Euro­pean Food Safe­ty Author­i­ty and, where required, the Amer­i­can Food Chem­i­cals Codex.

Our prod­uct port­fo­lio for the food indus­try gives you an overview of our min­er­al raw materials.

Mineral raw materials for a wide range of applications in food

Min­er­al raw mate­ri­als and com­pounds have become indis­pens­able in food pro­duc­tion and offer a wide range of appli­ca­tions. At MAGNESIA, you can obtain the right raw mate­r­i­al com­po­nent for almost any food pro­duc­tion, tak­ing into account the phys­i­cal prop­er­ties — even if it has to be kosher or halāl.

High-quality mineral compounds for food products

You can obtain cal­ci­um, mag­ne­sium and min­er­al com­pounds for food prod­ucts from MAGNESIA in the desired qual­i­ty and quan­ti­ty. We will be hap­py to send you detailed spec­i­fi­ca­tions, safe­ty data sheets and prod­uct sam­ples on request.

The fol­low­ing exam­ples will give you an insight into our prod­uct range:

Calcium propionate for the preservation of foodstuffs


  • an effec­tive means of extend­ing shelf life, espe­cial­ly for baked goods
  • reduces the devel­op­ment of bacteria

Your advantage

  • pro­motes the devel­op­ment of bones and teeth
  • sup­ports bet­ter blood clotting
  • offers a longer shelf life than com­pa­ra­ble preservatives

Calcium and magnesium as gelling agents


  • Min­er­als such as cal­ci­um and mag­ne­sium also act as gelling agents. Min­er­als such as sodi­um algi­nate are used as thick­en­ing agents in foods such as sauces, soups and desserts

Your advantage

  • They can improve the con­sis­ten­cy of foods such as jams, jel­lies and puddings

Calcium in food


  • used in dairy prod­ucts: Yogurt, ice cream, cheese
  • used in drinks: mul­ti­vi­t­a­min drinks, iso­ton­ic sports drinks, ener­gy drinks

Your advantage

  • increas­es the absorp­tion of the min­er­al cal­ci­um through food

Magnesium carbonate to increase the flowability


  • Sim­ple mix­ing of all ingredients

Your advantage

  • sup­ports the ner­vous sys­tem and mus­cle functions
  • dif­fer­ent vari­ants to choose from
  • flex­i­ble application

Erythritol as a sugar substitute


  • used in yogurts, pud­dings, ice cream and chocolate
  • serves as a sweet­en­er in drinks
  • nat­ur­al prod­uct with good tol­er­a­bil­i­ty and a gly­caemic index of zero

Your advantage

  • less lax­a­tive than oth­er sweeteners
  • zero calo­ries
  • cre­ates a pleas­ant taste sensation

FAQ — Frequently asked questions

There is no one-size-fits-all answer here. It is impor­tant to clar­i­fy how much mag­ne­sium is required, as well as the desired require­ments in terms of sol­u­bil­i­ty, col­or, taste and bulk den­si­ty. This allows us to find the right qual­i­ty for each indi­vid­ual requirement.

Min­er­als are essen­tial nutri­ents for the human organ­ism that can­not be pro­duced by the body itself. It is there­fore impor­tant to con­sume them through a bal­anced diet. They play an impor­tant role in the struc­ture and func­tion of bones, mus­cles, teeth and nerves, for example

Bioavail­abil­i­ty refers to how well or quick­ly a min­er­al is absorbed and processed by the human body.

In gen­er­al, the shelf life of our prod­ucts can­not be gen­er­al­ized. On aver­age, how­ev­er, we speak of 2–5 years with prop­er storage.

Yes, our prod­ucts are suit­able for var­i­ous needs. We offer appro­pri­ate cer­tifi­cates for veg­an or gluten-free diets, for exam­ple, and many of our prod­ucts also meet the kosher and halal require­ments of our customers.
