Bleaching Agents

Akzo Nobel Polymer Chemicals supplies benzoyl peroxide formulations which are specifically designed for use in food applications, under the trademark of Novadelox®. The most important application of Novadelox is for the bleaching of flour. It works by oxidizing the coloring chemicals in the flour. Originally, pure dry benzoyl peroxide was used for this application. However, due to the safety considerations of dry benzoyl peroxide (shock sensitive), Novadelox was introduced as a safer alternative.

A summary of Novadelox benefits includes:

  • Free flowing powder – easy to dose
  • Improved safety properties compared to dry benzoyl peroxide
  • Stored and shipped at ambient temperatures
