Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Benzoate are primarily used as FDA GRAS food additives and preservatives in food and beverage applications to reduce or inhibit activity of microorganisms. These products are also used in a wide range of other applications, such as pharmaceuticals, toiletries, adhesives, pastes, polishes, cleaners, and emulsions. Benzoate salts are typically used at 0.1% in food and beverage applications and up to 1.0% in cosmetic and household products. Potassium benzoate is designed to replace sodium benzoate in applications where low sodium content is desired. We serve our customers globally, providing several grades and physical forms from our facilities in Kalama, WA (USA) and Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
