Sorbic acid E200-110-44-1 can effectively inhibit mold, yeast and aerobic bacteria activity, but also to prevent botulism, staphylococcus, salmonella and other harmful micro-organisms grow and reproduce, but the E200 spores of anaerobic bacteria and Lactobacillus acidophilus and other beneficial micro-organisms is almost ineffective, its role in curbing the development of more than sterilization, so E200 as to achieve effectively extend the shelf life of food, and keep the original flavor of food. The preservative effect is of similar products is 5-10 times sodium benzoate.

E200-110-44-1 The main features of
1 mold with good results. E200-110-44-1 was significantly higher than the mold and acid salts,E200 s antifungal effect is 5-10 times sodium benzoate. E200-110-44-1 dosage is generally 0.2 to 1.0 g / kg.
(2) products of low toxicity, high safety. E200-110-44-1 side effects just benzoate 1 / 4 salt 1 / 2. E200-110-44-1 in the human bodys range of safe use: Use daily per kilogram of body weight does not exceed 25 mg.
3 does not change food characteristics. E200 is an unsaturated fatty acid, into the body, involved in human metabolic processes, metabolic product was carbon dioxide and water. Therefore, E200 can be seen as part of the food, in food applications, will not undermine food color, smell, taste and nutrients.
4. A wide range of applications. E200-110-44-1 can be used in beverages, wine, spices, meat, aquatic products, pickles and other food preservation among, and for fresh fruit is also effective.

Like other natural fatty acid, sorbic acid metabolism in the human body involved in the process, and is digested and absorbed, carbon dioxide and water. In terms of safety, E200 is an internationally recognized safe (GRAS) preservative, security is very high. FAO, WHO, U.S. FDA have affirmed their security. E200 side effects than the acid, vitamin C and salt but also low toxicity of benzoic acid is only 1 / 4 salt of the half. E200 on the human body does not produce carcinogenic and teratogenic effects. Because E200-110-44-1 is not very high solubility in water, affecting its application in food. Therefore, food additive producers often E200-110-44-1 made a good solubility potassium sorbate, E200 products to expand the scope of application.
