Magnesium Carbonate Trihydrate, also called magnesium hygroscopic solid, is a crystalline white inorganic salt. It is widely used in food products and in pharmaceuticals. In addition to antacids, magnesium carbonate is also used as a fertiliser. The refractive index of the hydrate is 1.458 and the density is 1.837 g/cm3.

As a raw material, magnesium carbonate is prepared by bubbling carbon dioxide into an aqueous suspension of magnesium hydroxide. After the dissolved magnesium has been removed, the resulting solution is filtered. If the precipitate is not suitable for immediate use, it is dried to remove water.

Magnesium carbonate is sold in two forms: dolomite and basic carbonate. Dolomite is a monoclinic crystal, while the basic form, MgCO3*2H2O, has a triclinic structure.

There are different types of magnesium carbonate hydrates, ranging from the basic to the needlelike. They are synthesized by carefully adjusting the reaction temperature and pH value.

Reactive magnesium carbonate is a new chemical element that can be used as a complementary refining effect within critical temperature and pH limits. This substance is added to preliminated juice at the end of preliming. During the contact period, the adsorption of colour and non-sugars takes place.

Magnesium carbonate trihydrate is available in most volumes immediately. In the US, American Elements produces it in a variety of standard grades. Using this ingredient in your production is safe and reliable. Contact American Elements for more information.

Magnesium carbonate is widely used as an antacid. It is also found in various other industrial applications.
