What is anti-caking agent E-551

Anti-caking agent E-551 is extracted from sand and contains silicic acid. Sicilic acid occurs in various forms in nature, not only in sand but also in quartz and clay minerals. The substance is a white crystalline powder,which is a solid composed of various crystals. It is virtually insoluble in water. Some of the products which contain this substance also contain very small particles called nanoparticles. Silicic acid is a natural substance that has been processed after extraction and therefore we refer to it as a artificial or synthetic substance.

Is anti-caking agent E-551 harmful?

Over the past few years, more and more messages have appeared stating that anti-caking agent E-551 is harmful. The reason for this is that nanosilica is virtually insoluble in water and hardly dissolves in the gastrointestinal tract as well. According to critics, it could therefore accumulate in the tissues of the human body. Despite this, this synthetic substance has so far been authorised by the European Commission, which means that it is safe to use in limited quantities.
