Bleaching Agents

A bleaching agent is used to lighten or whiten a substrate through chemical reaction. The bleaching reactions usually involve oxidative or reductive processes that degrade color systems. A food bleaching agent is simply used for the purpose of decolorizing food. For example, food manufacturers usually add flour bleaching agent to flour in order to make it appear whiter and to oxidize the surfaces of the flour grains and help with developing of gluten. Some common bleaching agents are organic peroxides (benzoyl peroxide), calcium peroxide, nitrogen dioxide, chlorine, chlorine dioxide, azodicarbonamide, and atmospheric oxygen. Bleaching is a shortcut to flour that is uniformly white. Using bleaching chemicals, flour producers do not need to wait for the grain to age and oxidize and get baking foods out immediately. Peroxides are widely used as bleaching agents in the U.S., but banned in E.U., China and Canada. You can find top bleaching agent manufacturers and suppliers from okfoodadd.com.
