Foodstuff Production

Foodstuff Production

Our potassium and magnesium products are used both as processing aids and as additives for the production of a great variety of foods. They are required in order to guarantee an optimal supply of both minerals to the human body or to conduct the appropriate food-technological processes.

 

Within the human cell, potassium is the predominant mineral. Throughout the whole body, potassium ranks third, after calcium and phosphorus.

 

The most important functions of potassium are the maintenance of the membrane potential and the generation of tension-dependent action potentials. These are decisive factors for the stability of human cells, the excitability of muscles and nerves, the transport of glucose, the generation of proteins, and the regulation of the acid-base and water balance.

 

Magnesium plays an important role in many metabolic processes, such as the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, fats and nucleic acids. It is indispensable for the energy supply to the body’s cells.
