Sodium Benzoate & Gluconic Acid & Water act as a preservative consisting of naturally derived sodium benzoate and gluconic acid. Natural benzoic acid obtained by the extraction of gum benzoin (a resinous material tapped from the bark of the styrax tree and commonly used in traditional medicine) is the starting material used to manufacture the sodium benzoate. Gluconic Acid occurs naturally in fruit, honey, Kombucha tea, and wine. Sodium benzoate works in synergy with gluconolactone to provide broad spectrum antimicrobial protection. It is used as a complexing agent and acidity regulator in our products.
