Emerald Kalama Chemical

Kalama® Potassium Benzoate

Kalama® Potassium benzoate is a high quality fine chemical, specifically manufactured for food and beverage use. It is designed to replace sodium benzoate in applications where the preserving power of benzoic acid is required, but where a low sodium content is desired. It is often used in low-sugar jams, marmalades, and jellies, as well as in alcohol-free beer. It can also be used in combination with artificial sweeteners to create a desired taste profile in non-alcoholic flavored soft drinks. Kalama® Potassium benzoate is an FDA GRAS food additive, approved for use as an antimicrobial agent and as a flavoring agent and adjuvant (21 CFR § 184.1733).
