Food Grade ChemicalsContinental is a leading distributor of food grade salts and chemicals that are commonly used in the processing of scallops, monkfish, fish fillets and whole fish. These additives are used to safely extend the shelf life of seafoods, as well as to improve quality, color and texture.
We offer Altesa, a phosphate-free powder that dissolves easily, even in chilled water. Altesa whitens, rehydrates and tenderizes seafoods for improved appearance and freshness in end-user applications. We also distribute Cafodos, a liquid additive that is phosphate-free and made from natural and safe citric acids and salts. The product, when mixed with water, provides a preventative action against microbiological growth in all types of seafood.
Please contact Continental for more information and specific mixture specifications.
