: I would like to receive some detail regarding the definition of "food grade" steam (steam suitable to be used in the food industry).
: It would be interesting also to receive some information in regard to the chemicals (additives such as pH adjuster or O2, CO2 neutralizers) that are approved from FDA, USDA for the use in the steam/condensate system of a food industry

Here's a clip from website
See Code of Federal Regulations, discuss with Chemical specialists,

Most boiler systems require the addition of water treatment
chemicals to prevent the buildup of scale on the boiler tubes and to
prevent corrosion in the boiler system. When the comes
into contact with the lacf, through direct injection of the
into the food; during the exhausting of containers in a
exhaust box; through injection of containers to form a vacuum, or through any other means, the
boiler additives must be approved for use as a food additive and
labeled for that use as per Title 21 CFR Part 173.310, Boiler
Water Additives.
