Wikipedia SummaryPotassium benzoate (E212), the potassium salt of benzoic acid, is a food preservative that inhibits the growth of mold, yeast and some bacteria. Acidic foods and beverages such as fruit juice (citric acid), sparkling drinks (carbonic acid), soft drinks (phosphoric acid), and pickles (vinegar) may be preserved with potassium benzoate. Synthesis == One very common way to make potassium benzoate is by oxidizing toluene to benzoic acid followed by a neutralization with potassium hydroxide. Mechanism of food preservation == The mechanism of food preservation begins with the absorption of benzoic acid into the cell. The Food Commission, which campaigns for safer, healthier food in the UK, describes potassium benzoate as 'mildly irritant to the skin, eyes and mucous membranes'.Cats have a significantly lower tolerance to benzoic acid and its salts than rats and mice.Under certain circumstances, such as in the presence of ascorbic acid, benzoate salts can produce benzene in soft drinks.
