It is considered by the US Food and drug administration to be "Generally recognized as safe, usually abbreviated as GRAS". It is estimated that 160 to 345 milligrams of calcium chloride food additives are consumed per person per day.

It can also solidify soybean curd to form tofu, and can also react with sodium alginate to gelate the surface of vegetables and fruit juice to form a caviar like ball as a raw material for cooking molecular food. Add electrolyte to sports drinks or soft drinks, including bottled water. Because calcium chloride itself has a very strong salty taste, it can replace salt for pickling cucumber production without increasing the sodium content of food. Calcium chloride can reduce the property of freezing point in the chocolate bar filled with caramel, and is used to delay the freezing of caramel.
