Magnesium Oxide Heavy Granular FCC is a heavy white to slightly pink granular material that is practically insoluble in alcohol, with a bulk density of between 0.8 and 1.0 g/cc. It is most commonly used in food as an alkali, neutralizer and mineral supplement.
Magnesium is one of the trace elements that are essential for human health. More than 300 enzymatic reactions in the body require magnesium to function effectively. Magnesium is necessary to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, support a healthy cardiovascular system and maintain healthy bone development.
