Chemically, chelating agents are organic compounds with a ring-like center which forms at least two bonds with the mineral ion to produce complex structures Chelating agents are food additives check oxidation and increase shelf life of baked goods. Chelating agents sequester metals, preventing them from taking part in colour or flavour deterioration. There are different types of chelating agents like thylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA), Polyphosphates, Organic acids such as citric or tartaric, etc. Ethylenediamine (EDTA): The most universally known chelating agent, EDTA serves as a multi-dentate molecule because it can form two different bonds.
How chelating agents works?
By binding metals, chelating agents can delay/hinder these activities, thus preserving the functional and sensory properties of food products. Some chelating agents can also act as effective antioxidants. Metals such as calcium, zinc, iron, copper and many others can interact with components of food systems or can act as cofactors for enzymatic activity. For example, EDTA is the most universally known chelating agent. Several salts of EDTA are produced mainly calcium disodium EDTA, disodium EDTA, tetrasodium.
