Calcium Chloride

Calcium chloride is a popular calcium salt and is often used to introduce calcium into mixtures. It is typically used with sodium alginate and other ingredients that require calcium.

Calcium chloride has a harsh, bitter taste so it is not suitable for use in reverse spherification or other methods where it would end up in the final dish.

Where to Buy Calcium Chloride

We usually recommend ModernistPantry.com, they have great service and are really good to work with (because of this, we do have an affiliate relationship with them). We also like purchasing calcium chloride from WillPowder and get larger quantities and bundles at ForTheGourmet.com .
