Calcium Acetate is the calcium salt of acetic acid. It has the formula Ca(C2H3OO)2. Its standard name is calcium acetate, while calcium ethanoate is the systematic IUPAC name. An older name is acetate of lime. The anhydrous form is very hygroscopic; therefore the monohydrate (Ca(CH3COO)2•H2O is the common form.


1.  Calcium acetate is used in the industry for the manufacturing of acetone, acetic acid and polyester.
2.  It can be used as food stabilizers, corrosion inhibitors as well as for the synthesis of acetate
3.  It is used as analysis reagents as well as the synthesis of acetate.
4.  Calcium acetate is a excellent food calcium fortifier with better absorption effect than inorganic calcium. It can be used for infant food with the usage amount of 3.0~6.0g/kg (in terms of elemental calcium, the same as below); in cereals and their products, the usage amount is 1.6~3.2g/kg; in drinks and milk drinks, it is 0.6~0.8 G/kg.
5.  Chelating agents; mold inhibitors; stabilizers; buffers; flavoring agents; preservatives; curing agents; nutritional fortifiers;
6.  For the analysis of reagents, organic synthesis, printing and dyeing and pharmaceutical industry, or as a food stabilizer, chelating agent, mold inhibitor, buffer, flavoring agent, corrosion inhibitor.
