Perfect for food industry

Perfect for food industry: Mineral compounds as helpful additives

Man­u­fac­tur­ers of baked goods, dairy prod­ucts, bev­er­ages and meat all over the world trust in our min­er­al com­pounds of the high­est qual­i­ty and puri­ty. They meet the require­ments of the Euro­pean Food Safe­ty Author­i­ty and, where nec­es­sary, the Amer­i­can Food Chem­i­cals Codex.

MAG­NE­SIAs min­er­al raw mate­ri­als guar­an­tee high bioavail­abil­i­ty. They are suc­cess­ful­ly used in the pro­duc­tion of min­er­al water and chew­ing gum as well as yoghurt, ice cream, waf­fles or for spice mix­tures and for preser­va­tion. In addi­tion to com­pounds based on mag­ne­sium and cal­ci­um, MAGNESIA offers com­pounds made from sodi­um, potas­si­um and zinc. MAGNESIA is also world­wide known as a sup­pli­er of dis­solved solids.

Broad range of application for food production

Tak­ing into account the nec­es­sary phys­i­cal prop­er­ties and the intend­ed use, you get the right com­po­nent for almost every appli­ca­tion from MAGNESIA. We also sup­ply sta­bi­liz­ers and acid­i­ty reg­u­la­tors for tai­lor-made prod­uct solu­tions accord­ing to cus­tomer require­ments — even if it should be kosher or halāl. Min­er­al com­pounds from MAGNESIA are fun­da­men­tal as

Rais­ing agents


Increase in flowability


Min­er­al fortification

Sug­ar substitutes

Ahead of competition with high-quality raw materials

Our exten­sive range of high-qual­i­ty raw mate­ri­als offers you big com­pet­i­tive advan­tage. Short deci­sion-mak­ing process­es and deliv­ery times as well as com­pet­i­tive prices and prop­er doc­u­men­ta­tion are fur­ther suc­cess levers that inspire our food customers.

First-class mineral compounds for food products

Cal­ci­um, mag­ne­sium and fur­ther min­er­al com­pounds as ingre­di­ents and addi­tives for your food prod­ucts are avail­able in the desired qual­i­ty and quan­ti­ty. We will be hap­py to pro­vide you with detailed spec­i­fi­ca­tions, safe­ty data sheets and prod­uct sam­ples on your request. 

The fol­low­ing exam­ples are sup­posed to give an idea of our broad prod­uct range:

Calcium propionate for the preservation of food


  • espe­cial­ly for bak­ery prod­ucts an effec­tive means to extend shelf life
  • reduces the devel­op­ment of bacteria


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

Calcium in foods


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


  • serves to increase the absorp­tion of the min­er­al cal­ci­um through food

Magnesium carbonate to increase flowability


  • sim­ple mix­ing of all ingredients


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

Erythritol as sugar substitute


  • used in yogurts, pud­dings, ice cream and chocolate
  • serves as sweet­en­er in beverages
  • nat­ur­al prod­uct with good tol­er­ance and a glycemic index of zero


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

Safety first for food products

Man­u­fac­tur­ers of safe, high-qual­i­ty food world­wide rely on our exper­tise. In order to ensure the legal­ly com­pli­ant qual­i­ty of our cus­tomers’ prod­ucts, we con­sis­tent­ly keep an eye on the applic­a­ble stan­dards of the fol­low­ing institutions:

Food Chem­i­cals Codex

Euro­pean Reg­u­la­tion (EC) No. 1333/2008

IFS (inter­na­tion­al stan­dard in the food industry)

Supplier qualification as an integrated process

As part of the qual­i­fi­ca­tion process of our sup­pli­ers, we car­ry out appro­pri­ate audits and ensure that require­ments are met. Even after suc­cess­ful qual­i­fi­ca­tion, com­pli­ance with legal require­ments is reg­u­lar­ly assessed. Our inte­grat­ed process ensures that all changes at sup­pli­er facil­i­ties or to the prod­uct that could affect man­u­fac­tur­ing or test para­me­ters are checked and approved before implementation.

MAGNESIA makes the difference

MAGNESIA not only offers excel­lent addi­tives, active ingre­di­ents and excip­i­ents, but also a com­pre­hen­sive ser­vice that our long-term cus­tomers par­tic­u­lar­ly appre­ci­ate. Qual­i­ty man­age­ment, doc­u­ment man­age­ment and the nec­es­sary cer­ti­fi­ca­tions and audits of sup­pli­ers and prod­ucts are an inte­gral part of our ser­vice. Furthermore

fixed con­tact per­sons make the coop­er­a­tion a real part­ner­ship for both sides, which ben­e­fits from work­ing hand in hand. In short: We think along with you, and the up-to-date­ness of the doc­u­ments required by qual­i­ty man­age­ment is proac­tive­ly provided,

one of our suc­cess prin­ci­ples is called “trans­paren­cy”. We are hap­py to com­ply with the request of our man­u­fac­tur­er part­ners to dis­close the ori­gin of sub­stances and mate­ri­als ordered,

seam­less mon­i­tor­ing of the sup­ply chain is guar­an­teed, in par­tic­u­lar to meet our due dili­gence oblig­a­tions as min­er­al trad­er and to make the pro­cure­ment process and stor­age as trans­par­ent as possible.

short deliv­ery times are a cru­cial fac­tor for our cus­tomers. We, there­fore, either use our own ware­house for stock­ing pur­pos­es or a suit­ably qual­i­fied and mon­i­tored exter­nal ware­house keeper,

MAGNESIA, as a reli­able part­ner, safe­guards the intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty rights of your prod­ucts. We treat your trade secrets with absolute con­fi­den­tial­i­ty and the pro­tec­tion of cus­tomer data is one of our values.
