So, what is benzoat de sodiu?

Benzoat de sodiu, also known as sodium benzoate, is a white, odorless crystalline powder that is commonly used as a food preservative. It is soluble in water and has a slightly sweet and bitter taste. This food ingredient is produced by combining benzoic acid with sodium hydroxide, and it is typically added to acidic foods such as soft drinks, fruit juices, pickles, and condiments to prevent the growth of bacteria, yeasts, and fungi. Despite its widespread use, some studies have raised concerns about the potential health effects of consuming large amounts of sodium benzoate, particularly in combination with certain other food additives.
