CALCIUM CHLORIDE is a salt used in beer brewing as a water adjuster. CALCIUM CARBONATE can be used to increase the calcium content in water that is low in chlorides. This will also lower the pH.
CALCIUM CHLORIDE is often added to food as it increases the saltiness of foods without adding sodium to our diet. This is useful in applications such as canned foods and pickling.
