Sodium Tetraborate is also know Borax, Sodium Borate, or Disodium Tetraborate. Sodium Tetraborate, is a naturally occurring mineral and is a source of the essential element boron, which is an inexpensive, and effective antiseptic, antifungal and insecticidal treatment. Sodium Tetraborate occurs naturally in evaporate deposits produced by the repeated evaporation of seasonal lakes. Sodium Tetraborate can be produced synthetically from other boron compounds. The naturally occurring sodium Tetraborate is refined by the process of re-crystallization.
Sodium Tetraborate is an important boron compound, a mineral, and a salt of boric acid. Sodium Tetraborate are widely used and is a component in cosmetics, enamel glazes, and detergents. These are also used to make buffer solutions in the biochemistry, as a fire retardant, as an anti-fungal compound.
Sodium Tetraborate is necessary in small amounts for the plant growth, which is one of the 16 essential nutrients for plants. However, in a larger quantity it is harmful for the plants. For instance, for peaches 1 ppm is required but more than 5 ppm is toxic for the plant. Moreover, a sign of deficiency is noted in plants, the boron supplements can be applied. Another major driver, surging the demand for sodium Tetraborate is they can be used as a non-toxic & as non-specific herbicides.
Sodium Tetraborate is non-toxic to animals. Anything above 2g is considered non-toxic, and sodium Tetraborate is only two to three times as toxic as aspirin. Sodium Tetraborate is also used as food additive in few countries, but these are also banned in U.S.. Therefore as a consequence, certain foods such as cavier produced for sale in the U.S. contain high levels of salt to assist preservation and longer shelf life.
Sodium Tetraborate has many uses and one of them being a food ingredient. Sodium Tetraborate adds a firm rubbery texture to the food and even are added as a food preservative. These are also used in oriental cooking for mostly improving its texture properties. Moreover, in Indonesia these are a common, and forbidden additive in foods such as noodles, meat balls, and steamed rice. The countries Directorate of Consumers Protection also warns the risk of liver cancer with high a consumption over a period of time.
