What is food preservatives?

Food preservatives are substances added to food products to prevent spoilage, extend shelf life, and maintain their quality and safety for consumption over a longer period. These additives work by inhibiting the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and molds, as well as slowing down oxidation processes that cause food to deteriorate. Preservatives can be either natural or synthetic and are commonly found in various processed foods, beverages, and condiments. Examples of food preservatives include salt, sugar, vinegar, citric acid, sulfites, nitrites, and various chemical compounds such as benzoates, sorbates, and propionates. While preservatives help maintain food freshness and safety, excessive consumption of certain synthetic preservatives may raise health concerns, leading to regulations and guidelines regarding their usage levels in food products.
