Use of food grade potassium chloride
The use of food grade potassium chloride, such as in the food industry can be used for generation of salts, nutritional supplements, gelling agent, yeast food, flavoring agent, flavoring agent, pH control agent. The general nutrition food grade potassium chloride as potassium in food, nutrition and other potassium, it is cheap, high potassium content, easy storage and other characteristics, so the consumption of potassium chloride and potassium nutrition fortifier as the most widely used, but also in the fermented food as fermentation nutritional agent. In addition, due to chelation and gelling properties of strong potassium ions with potassium chloride can be used in food as a gelling agent, general carrageenan, gellan gum and other food colloids will use food grade potassium chloride.
Food grade potassium chloride and salt can be used as agricultural products, aquatic products, livestock products, fermentation products, spices, canned food, convenience food flavoring agent, or used to strengthen potassium (for body electrolyte beverage use) preparation of athletes.
Second section of the basic characteristics of the market
1, China’s food grade potassium chloride market development prospects
With the rapid economic growth of our country, it provides a huge market space for the food grade potassium chloride products. Food grade potassium chloride can be used as a substitute for salt, nutritional supplements, and cementing agent. Therefore, with the continuous improvement of living standards, residents in China has increased rapidly in low sodium products, jelly products, spices, canned food, convenience food products demand, upstream stimulating food grade potassium chloride and other ingredients consumption continued to grow steadily, food grade potassium chloride market has great potential for future development.
2, China’s food grade potassium chloride industry layout, regional market concentration is higher
At this stage, the number of domestic food grade potassium chloride industry produces about dozens of enterprises, concentrated in the Lianyungang area of Jiangsu province. Lianyungang is one of the ten major ports in the country. With the rapid development of the local industrial economy such as potassium chloride, the number of food grade potassium chloride production enterprises in Lianyungang is rising, so the regional distribution of food grade potassium chloride industry is prominent.
3, China’s food grade potassium chloride industry, industrial concentration and competitiveness needs to be enhanced
Because the capital technical threshold for food grade potassium chloride into the industry is not high, the majority of our food grade potassium chloride production enterprise production scale is small, and the production is uneven, product homogeneity serious, disorderly development of the industry. Food grade potassium chloride industry competition is more chaotic, some enterprises in order to survive the vicious price competition, damage the healthy development of the whole food grade potassium chloride industry. Therefore, the optimal allocation of resources in China’s food grade potassium chloride industry and capital agglomeration, industry concentration and competitiveness need to be further enhanced.
Third section product classification
Food grade potassium chloride products according to the specific application in the food industry and other applications, can be divided into generation of salts, nutritional supplements, gelling additives, yeast food, flavoring agent, flavoring agent, pH control agent is fine;
The content of potassium chloride was divided into 97%, 98%, 99% and so on. According to the grain size, the indexes can be divided into 30, 40, 60, 200, 80 and so on.
The second chapter is the development of food grade potassium chloride Market
Section 1 general situation of the development of the international food grade potassium chloride
First, the international status of the product analysis
Global potassium chloride market, the products are mainly used as food additives, nutritional supplements, gelling agent, salt substitute, yeast food and so on, to strengthen the role of gel. Like salt, can be used for agricultural products, aquatic products, animal products, fermentation products, spices, canned food, instant food, etc., or for the use of potassium (for human body electrolyte) preparation of athletes drinks, etc..
According to statistics: the international potassium chloride market consumption structure, about 95% of potassium chloride is mainly used to produce agricultural potash fertilizer and pharmaceutical grade potassium chloride, and for food grade potassium chloride is less than 5%. The global market: food grade potassium chloride downstream applications use mainly in the upstream industrial food ingredients, additives and other related industries, the market is more special, the scale of consumption and demand is relatively stable, so the food grade potassium chloride industry affected by the global financial crisis. In recent years, although the global demand for potassium chloride in 2008 decreased, but the food grade potassium chloride production and sales volume is still stable upward trend.
Along with the international food industry, food ingredients and additives and other related industry market development, food grade potassium chloride will continue to expand the scale of market demand, the price level of food grade potassium chloride products also increased.
Two, the main countries and regions of the product overview
Food grade potassium chloride mainly consumes raw material industrial grade potassium chloride only accounts for a very small proportion of potassium chloride production. International food grade potassium chloride production capacity and regional distribution of potash resources distribution is not entirely consistent, but to a greater extent and the economies of the food industry, processing industry technical level of potassium chloride is associated.
International market food grade potassium chloride consumption area is relatively wide, European, American and Asian food grade potassium chloride market consumption is larger. World food grade potassium chloride is mainly distributed in China, Russia, Canada, Germany, the United States, India and Southeast Asia and other countries or regions.
