The above listed C-2000 series of antifoams are food-grade, water-based, silicone
emulsions (as polydimethylsiloxane) designed to control foam in most aqueous systems.
Widely used in many non-food-grade industrial applications, these antifoams find
utility beyond, and are not limited to, the food industry. The functional properties
developed especially for our C-2000 products to eliminate and prevent excessive foam
include: quick dispersibility, slight insolubility, relative stability, and a high
degree of spreadability in the foaming system. The active ingredient, polydimethylsiloxane,
is an inert polymer. These particular C-2000 antifoams products utilize only food-grade,
nonionic emulsifiers; and contain only ingredients that are recognized by qualified
experts as safe in food products according to the Code of Federal Regulations, Title
21, Part 173.340. They may therefore be used as direct food additives in most foods
at levels anywhere from 33 to 333 parts per million (mg/L) depending upon the product.
As processing aids, these C-2000 products are considered 'secondary direct food additives'
and impart no flavor, odor, or functional attributes to the food. Please consult
the Code of Federal Regulations for further clarification on antifoam usage in your
