So, what is orthophynl phenol?

Orthophenyl phenol (OPP) is a synthetic organic compound that is commonly used in the food industry as a preservative and disinfectant. It is a white, crystalline substance with a mild odor that is soluble in water and ethanol. OPP is known for its antimicrobial properties that can inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. As a food additive, it is often added to fruits, vegetables, and meat products to prevent spoilage and extend their shelf life. While OPP has been deemed safe for consumption by regulatory agencies, some individuals may experience allergic reactions to it.
