So, what is sodium orthophenyl phenol?

Sodium orthophenyl phenol is a food ingredient commonly used as a preservative and antimicrobial agent. It has a white or pale yellow crystalline powder appearance and is soluble in water. Sodium orthophenyl phenol is effective against a wide range of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, and viruses. However, excessive consumption may cause adverse health effects such as gastrointestinal irritation or allergic reactions. Despite this, it remains a popular additive in the food industry due to its effectiveness in protecting against spoilage and extending the shelf life of packaged foods.
