Preservatives Sodium Benzoate IN 211
Benzoic acid and benzoates are used as preservatives against both yeasts and bacteria in acidic products. They are not very effective against fungi, and ineffective in products with a pH above 5 (slightly acidic or neutral). High concentrations have an acid taste, which limits the application. Benzoates are often preferred, due to better solubility.
In some people benzoic acid and benzoates may liberate histamine and thus cause pseudo-allergic reactions.
