So, what is nátrium-benzoát?

Nátrium-benzoát is a commonly used food ingredient that functions as a preservative in various food products. This compound is a sodium salt of benzoic acid and is known for its ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi, thereby extending the shelf life of food items. It is commonly found in soft drinks, pickles, and jams, among other food products. Despite being a popular preservative, nátrium-benzoát has been associated with health concerns, including asthma, hyperactivity, and allergic reactions. As such, many food manufacturers are looking for alternative preservatives to replace nátrium-benzoát.
