Purox and Kalama® Benzoate Preservatives
Benzoic acid and its salts are highly effective preservatives to inhibit the growth of yeasts, bacteria, and molds in acidic food and beverage applications. Emerald’s Purox benzoates are produced to the highest purity available, minimum 99.9%, which ensures excellent taste and odor profiles.
