N2O With Food-Graded Compliance
Nitrous oxide application in the food industry along with the pharmaceutical industry, is mostly done through aerosol cans. Its most frequent use is being the driving gas in whipped cream dispensers.
Food Grade vs. Medical Grade
In comparison to food grade n2o, medical grade (USP) nitrous oxide is obtained from chemical supply houses and specialized gas companies who purify the gas for human use.
The ideal medium for whipping up cream is N2O. The effect of nitrous oxide on the taste of food is negligible to none, and is easy to use. Laughing gas as E942 is an authorised food-additive and finds its use in professional kitchens and in a larger (company) catering setting.
Nitrous oxide is also used in semiconductor production of electronic chips when the purity levels are at its highest (around 99.995%+).
Food Grade N2O Suppliers
Suppliers for nitrous oxide are quickly found after a Google search query. Most of these companies don’t burn their hands on selling to customers for improper use. Necessary evidence is needed to control and maintain the correct use of nitrous oxide.
Food Grade N2O on Alibaba
Alibaba houses a lot of wholesalers for whipped cream cartridges. Among these a lot of manufacturers are situated in China, who meet the demand of the market for higher volumes of food-graded N2O.
AliExpress vs Alibaba
The platforms of AliExpress and Alibaba are owned by the same Chinese company; Alibaba Group. AliExpress is a platform where companies sell food grade nitrous oxide to customers (B2C) for affordable prices, without a minimum order requirement. At Alibaba, companies sell food grade nitrous oxide to other companies (B2B). Often times a minimum order amount is required, but loads of businesses are willing to send samples before ‘official’ wholesale purchases.
While both of these platforms house sellers that are mostly from China, there are also sellers from other countries. Various reasons such as the friendly user experience and shipping and payment processes have made AliExpress the second-most popular eCommerce platform in the world.
