Low impurity levels give Purox® S sodium benzoate an excellent taste and odor profile, making it the right choice for the most demanding end-product requirements. It has a long history of use as a globally trusted, nature identical preservative used to safely and effectively inhibit microbial growth in foods, beverages, cosmetics, toiletries, and pharmaceuticals up to pH 6.5. Purox S is an FDA GRAS food additive, approved for use as an antimicrobial agent, flavoring agent, and adjuvant (21 CFR § 184.1733).
In addition to its exceptional purity, Purox® S offers outstanding physical properties for consistently high performance in handling, production and packaging processes. Thanks to the unique shaping process, Purox® S has almost perfectly round particles with a narrow particle size distribution. The result of this tailor-made particle size distribution is an optimal combination of low dust content, high flow and excellent dissolution properties.
