1. What’s the using quantity recommended?
EDTA is a very powerful chelation agent, with a recommended concentration of 100–300 parts per million.
2. Can it be used for all kind baking products?
EDTA salts (disodium and tetrasodium) can be used as sequestrants in many foods, and even beverages. EDTA reacts negatively with ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and sodium bicarbonate.
