So, what is calcium propanoate?

Calcium propanoate is a food additive commonly used as a preservative to extend the shelf life of baked goods. It is a white crystalline powder that is soluble in water and has a slightly sour taste. Calcium propanoate inhibits the growth of mold and other microorganisms by interfering with their metabolism. It is often added to bread, pastries, and other baked goods to prevent spoilage and maintain freshness. Calcium propanoate is generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies and is commonly used in the food industry. However, some people may be sensitive to it and experience allergic reactions, so it's important to read food labels carefully if you have any allergies or dietary restrictions.
