Product Description

Sodium benzoate is a well-known chemical compound that is commonly used in food, beverage, pharmaceutics, and cosmetics for the purpose of preservation. Recognized as an effective means of inhibiting the growth of mold, yeast, and bacteria, it is used on many products to increase their acidity which includes salad dressings, mineral waters, jams, and fruit juices.

Sodium benzoate as a corrosion inhibitor not only can be found in antifreeze products, but also used to cover the bad taste of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics as a preservative. Its functionality is based on its ability to convert into benzoic acid in an acidic environment, which is the active form that reduces the number of microorganisms.

Due to its low toxicity and high effectiveness at low concentrations, it remains a popular additive that allows manufacturers to maintain product safety and increase shelf-life.
