Propionic Acid & Salts

PROPIONIC ACID & PROPIONATE SALTS THROUGH FERMENTATION

Prathista Industries Limited, the Asia Largest Fermentation Unit has started production of PROPIONIC ACID AND ITS SALTS (SODIUM PROPIONATE AND CALCIUM PROPIONATE) within existing facilities. The Company's in-house R&D has developed state of the art and unique Fermentation Technology based on IMPORTED Strain for manufacturing of PROPIONIC ACID & its Salts. PROPIONIC ACID is being produced based on Bacteria of the genus Propionibacterium as the end product of their anaerobic metabolism.

PROPIONIC ACID USES AND APPLICATIONS

- Propionic Acid inhibits the growth of mold and some bacteria at the levels between 0.1 and 1% by weight.
- Propionic Acid is consumed as a preservative for both animal feed and food for human consumption.
- Propionic Acid is uses as a preservative in baked goods, which use the sodium and calcium salts.
- Propionic Acid is also useful as an intermediate in the production of other chemicals, especially polymers.
- Propionic Acid is also used in Plastic Industry. Cellulose-acetate-propionate and Vinyl propionate are useful thermoplastic.
- In more specialized applications, Propionic Acid is also used to make pesticides and pharmaceuticals.
- The esters of Propionic Acid have fruit-like odors and are used as solvents or artificial flavorings.
- Ammonium Propionate derived from Propionic Acid is used as Anti-Mold Agent.

Propionic Acid also finds application as Flavoring Agent, Herbicide Intermediate, Pharmaceutical Intermediate, Dye Intermediates, Textile and Rubber Auxiliaries, Plastic and Cosmetics.

4.LIVESTOCK AND POULTRY FEEDS
Calcium Propionate acts as good binding material for TIXIN binders for Poultry segment.

Sodium Propionate works very well when added to feeds and feed components at the highest level necessary to obtain the most effective mold control in accordance with the moisture level and storage conditions.

Sodium Propionate gives excellent results when added in feed of Poultry, Veterinary, Fishery, Piggery and other Livestock.

Calcium Propionate gives excellent results when added in feed of Poultry, Veterinary, Fishery, Piggery and other Livestock.

Calcium Propionate and Sodium Propionate are used as a preservative in a wide variety of products, including but not limited to bread, other baked goods, processed meat, whey, and other dairy products.

In agriculture, it is used, amongst other things, to prevent milk fever in cows and as a feed supplement Propionates prevent microbes from producing the energy they need, like benzoates do. However, unlike benzoates, propionates do not require an acidic environment.

Calcium Propionate is used in bakery products as a mold inhibitor, typically at 0.1-0.4% (though animal feed may contain up to 1%). Mold contamination is considered a serious problem amongst bakers, and conditions commonly found in baking present near-optimal conditions for mold growth.

Calcium Propionate and Sodium Propionate are effective against both Bacillus mesentericus rope and mold.

Calcium Propionate & Sodium Propionate Are Non-Toxic Food Chemical Generally Regarded As Safe By The FDA.
