So, what is sodium erythorbate?

Sodium erythorbate is a food ingredient that is used primarily as a preservative and antioxidant. It is a sodium salt of erythorbic acid, which is a natural organic compound that is found in fruits and vegetables. Sodium erythorbate is a white, odorless, and crystalline powder that is soluble in water. It is commonly used in the food industry to prevent the oxidation of fats, oils, and colors in processed foods. Additionally, sodium erythorbate can also enhance the flavor of some foods, particularly meats. It is considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies worldwide and is often used in combination with other preservatives to extend the shelf life of food products.
