Magnesium Chloride FCC Food Grade, US Food Chemical Codex

MgCl2·6H2O Formula weight 203.30

Magnesium Chloride occurs as colorless flakes or crystals. It contains six molecules of water of hydration. It is hygroscopic, very soluble in water, and freely soluble in alcohol.
Function: Color-retention agent; firming agent.

Identification: A 1:10 aqueous solution gives positive tests for Magnesium and for Chloride.
Assay: Not less than 99.0% and not more than 105.0% of MgCl2·6H2O.
Ammonium: Not more than 0.005%.
Lead: Not more than 4 mg/kg.
Sulfate: Not more than 0.03%.

Magnesium chloride (E511 is an important coagulant used in the preparation of cheese and tofu. In Japan it is sold as nigari (derived from the Japanese word for “bitter”), In China, it is called lushuiNigari or lushui consists mostly of magnesium chloride, with some magnesium sulfate and other trace elements. It is also an ingredient in baby formula milk.
