Nutrinova® Sorbic Acid

Nutrinova® Sorbic acid, from Celanese, is a reliable preservative that is highly effective and absolutely safe for the consumer.  It provides strong protection against numerous molds, yeast and many bacteria.  Growth of several mycotoxin-forming molds is also inhibited.  Sorbic acid is a fatty acid similar to those found naturally in foods.  Sorbic acid is only sparingly soluble in water.  Therefore, sorbic acid is mainly used in products with low water content  e.g., in baked goods or in fatty media.  Upon request, Nutrinova Sorbic Acid is available in pharmaceutical grade.
