Health, Food & Nutrition

The importance of minerals in human nutrition and metabolism cannot be overstated. Calcium is the key structural component of bones and teeth and plays a role in cellular processes, muscle contraction, blood clotting and enzyme activation.


Imerys calcium carbonates for the health, food and nutrition industries are used in dietary supplements and pharmaceuticals, as well as in fortified and functional foods and beverages. Their high calcium content, formulation flexibility, and reliability of supply appeal to formulators seeking products that can meet the needs of this growing industry.

Acala™ line of precipitated calcium carbonates consists of highly pure calcium carbonate particles with shapes and sizes not available from ground calcium carbonate products. The unique particle surface areas and densities are ideal for manufacturers concerned with compactability, dissolution and/or sensory quality. The Acala™ product line features low lead content, high purity, high calcium content, and formulation flexibility. It meets USP/FCC grade, GRAS and Kosher requirements.
