Since the early 1900's, sodium benzoate has been used widely as a preservative in a wide range of preservative applications due to its antimicrobial action combined with its low toxicity and low taste.

From carbonated and non-carbonated beverages, fruit and fruit juices, syrups, olives, pickles and other condiments sodium benzoate is widely used in a number of the products we consume every day.

Sodium benzoate is a hygroscopic material. The container MUST be kept closed when not in use.

Easily dissolves in water, forming a transparent, colorless solution.

Sodium benzoate is listed as "GRAS" or GENERALLY REGARDED AS SAFE by the U.S. FDA when used as an antimicrobial agent or as a flavoring agent and adjunct in levels not to exceed good manufacturing practice (GMP), currently limited to 0.1% Maximum in food. Sodium benzoate works best in acidic environments.

Sodium Benzoate is primarily used as a preservative in the food and beverage industries. It also is used as a preservative in cosmetic products and as a corrosion inhibitor in automotive and other antifreeze products.
