The main source of calcium stearate in food

The US Commerce Secretary has announced that the US will temporarily lift tariffs imposed on Ukraine during the Trump administration to help Ukraine recover its economy and continue to show support for the Russia-Ukraine situation. "For steel mills to remain an economic lifeline for the Ukrainian people, they must be able to export steel," the Commerce Department said in a statement.

The Biden administration will announce the lifting of steel tariffs on Ukraine for one year.  Ukraine is a fairly small supplier of U.S. steel, shipping about 218,000 tons in 2019, ranking it 12th among foreign suppliers to the United States, the report said. The U.S. Commerce Department noted that the steel industry is uniquely important to Ukraine's economic strength, with one in 13 people employed in the steel industry.

Calcium Stearate Overview

Calcium stearate, molecular formula (C17H35COO)2Ca. White, odorless fine powder, absorbs water in the air. Insoluble in water, slightly soluble in hot ethanol and ether. Reacts with strong acids to generate stearic acid and corresponding calcium salts. Low toxicity.

 Application of calcium stearate

Unlike traditional soaps and potassium soaps, calcium stearate is a waxy substance with low solubility in water. It is also easy and inexpensive to produce, and has low toxicity.

 Calcium stearate is used as a flow agent and surface modifier in some confections.

This is a waterproof fabric.

Lubricant in pencils and crayons.

The utility model relates to a lubricant for producing a dry drawing method with a wire rod.

The concrete industry uses calcium stearate to control the weathering of cement products used in the production of concrete blocks (ie, pavers and blocks), as well as for waterproofing.

In paper production, calcium stearate is used as a lubricant to provide good gloss and prevent dust and fold cracks in paper and board manufacturing.

In plastics it is used as an acid scavenger or neutralizer (up to 1000 PPM), lubricant and mold release. Can be used in plastic colorant concentrates to improve pigment wetting. In rigid PVC, it accelerates fusion, improves flow and reduces mold swell.

Applications in the personal care and pharmaceutical industries include tablet release agents, anti-blocking agents and gelling agents.

Calcium stearate is an ingredient in some types of antifoams.

Anti-caking agent.

 Calcium stearate in food is a synthetic ingredient used in food as an anti-caking agent, mold release agent, lubricant, binder, emulsifier and thickener. European Food Additive Number E470a. It can also be used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, plastics and other applications.

 The main raw material of calcium stearate - stearic acid is a naturally occurring saturated fatty acid in animal fats and vegetable oils in the form of glycerides.

 Common animal sources: suet, tallow, and lard.

Common plant sources: cocoa butter, soybean oil, palm oil, coconut oil, olive oil, and corn oil.

Most of the stearic acid used to produce calcium stearate comes from vegetable oil, so it can be called vegetable calcium stearate.

The day after the shooting at a Texas elementary school, the National Rifle Association issued a statement saying it "extends its deepest sympathies to the families and victims involved in this terrible and evil crime," adding it would "reflect on these events and pray for the victims."  

It comes just days before the National Rifle Association's annual convention in Houston, Texas.  Houston is less than five hours away. Texas Governor Tony Abbott, Senator Ted Cruz, and others are scheduled to attend the event, which has also caused a lot of controversies.  

Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark O 'Rourke took to social media to call on Abbott to pull out of the convention, urging that it be held outside Texas. Many American netizens also took to social media to express their dissatisfaction. "I wish the NRA's annual meeting was held three days after 19 children and two adults were massacred," said one. "The school shooting was not a lone Wolf, but with the help of the NRA."

Between 2000 and 2020, US gun manufacturers produced more than 139 million guns for the civilian market, according to the Justice Department report. The NATIONAL Rifle Association (NRA) is one of the leading gun rights advocates with more than 5m members and deep pockets. The United States has not passed major gun control laws for more than two decades, blocked by gun interests.
