So, what is kwas benzoesowy?

Kwas benzoesowy, also known as benzoic acid, is a white crystalline powder with a slightly sweet and astringent taste. It is a common food preservative used to inhibit the growth of bacteria, yeasts, and fungi, thereby extending the shelf life of various foods and drinks. Kwas benzoesowy occurs naturally in some fruits such as cranberries, plums, and prunes, but it is typically produced synthetically for use in the food industry. While generally recognized as safe, excessive consumption of kwas benzoesowy may cause allergic reactions or other adverse health effects, especially for those with underlying medical conditions.
