Granular calcium peroxide is made of powdered calcium peroxide. Calcium peroxide is a white or yellowish solid peroxide which slowly decomposes to release oxygen at a "controlled" rate when in contact of hydrous media. Calcium peroxide based chemical oxygen product is of the most temperature stable inorganic oxygen release compounds. It decomposes slowly in moist air, is practically insoluble in water, and dissolves in acids, forming hydrogen peroxide.
Calcium peroxide has been used for many years as a dough conditioner in the United States, but not in Europe, where this use is not permitted. ... In Japan, it is used in the cultivation of tomatoes, cucumbers, tobacco, and prawns; in Europe, it has been used as a coating on beet seeds. Another industrial application of calcium peroxide is as an oxidizing agent in the production of certain titanium-aluminum alloys. A rather new application is as a peroxide source in toothpaste.
When used in doughs, calcium peroxide is decomposed during baking. Some calcium peroxide is used in toothpastes as a whitener. Calcium peroxide can be used in agriculture to release oxygen into soils or as a seed pretreatment.
