So, what is benzoato sodico?

Benzoato sodico, also known as sodium benzoate, is a white, odorless, crystalline powder commonly used as a food preservative. It is the sodium salt of benzoic acid, a natural compound found in berries and other fruits. Sodium benzoate is a versatile food additive that can prevent the growth of bacteria, yeasts, and molds in acidic foods, such as fruit juices, soft drinks, and pickles. It is also used as a flavor enhancer in some foods and drinks. While generally regarded as safe, some studies have raised concerns about the potential health effects of sodium benzoate when combined with certain other food additives.
