Acidity Regulators

Product Description
Citric Acid An organic acid naturally found in citrus fruits. Used as a natural preservative and / or to add an acidic taste to baked products.
Ascorbic Acid Ascorbic Acid or Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for certain animals including humans. Vitamin C is also added to some fruit juices
and juice drinks

Anti-foaming Agents

A defoamer or an anti-foaming agent is a chemical additive that reduces and hinders the formation of foam in industrial process liquids. The terms anti-foam agent and defoamer are often used interchangeably. Commonly used agents are insoluble oils, polydimethylsiloxanes and other silicones, certain alcohols, stearates and glycols. The additive is used to prevent formation of foam or is added to break a foam already formed.

Preservatives

Product Description
Calcium Benzoate It is preferentially used more than other benzoic acid salts or its esters in foods due to its better solubility and safety to humans. It is used in soft drinks, fruit juice, concentrates, soy milk, soy sauce and vinegar.
Potassium Benzoate Enables soft drink products to have a longer shelf life by inhibiting or arresting the growth of micro-organisms such as yeasts, moulds and bacteria.
Sodium Benzoate Sodium Benzoate is a widely used food preservative. It is most widely used in acidic foods such as salad dressings (i.e. acetic acid in vinegar), carbonated drinks (carbonic acid), jams and fruit juices (citric acid), pickles (acetic acid), condiments and yogurt toppings. It is also used as a preservative in medicines and cosmetics. Sodium benzoate occurs naturally, along with benzoic acid and its esters, in many foods, it is found naturally in tiny amounts in fruits such as cranberries, prunes, and apples.
Natamycin It is used to retard fungal outgrowth in dairy products, beverages and other food products. It is used as a replacement of traditional chemical preservatives, has a neutral flavor impact, and less dependence on pH for efficacy, as is common with chemical preservatives.
