EDTA & Salts
EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid)
Sequestrant and antioxidant added to foods, body care, and household products. It occurs as disodium calcium EDTA, tetrasodium EDTA, and disodium dihydrogen EDTA. As a sequestrant, it binds trace minerals such as copper, iron and nickel that may be in the product. If not inactivated, these minerals will lead to discoloration, rancidity and textural breakdown. When added as an antioxidant, EDTA prevents oxygen from causing color changes and rancidity.
EDTA as a Food Additive/Preservative

The EDTA molecule acts as an anticoagulant in medical and laboratory equipment. It is only used in tubes of blood and medical machinery since it “chelates” all the calcium contained in blood. Even dentists use this compound as a root canal irritant in removing organic and inorganic debris compounds.Industrial Uses
Present day industrial use: as an additive and food preservative and to remove unwanted metals that get into foods from the soil and machinery during harvesting and processing. EDTA reacts with these elements by forming tightly bound complexes to prevent decomposition
