So, what is metilparabeno?

Methylparaben is a food ingredient used as a preservative, commonly found in processed foods, soft drinks, jams, and pickles. Known for its antimicrobial properties, it helps to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi, which can cause spoilage and deterioration in food products. Methylparaben is considered safe for human consumption by regulatory agencies, including the FDA, but concerns have been raised regarding its potential impact on hormonal balance. Despite this, methylparaben remains a widely used ingredient in the food industry due to its effectiveness and low cost.
