Product Name: Sorbic acid
Chemical Name: sorbic acid,2,4-di-ethene acid
CAS No.: 110-44-1
EINECS No.: 203-768-7
FEMA No.: 2544
Molecular Formula: C6H8O2
Molecular weight: 112.33.
1. Colorless needle crystal or white crystalline powder. Tasteless, slight special smell.
2. Melting point: 132~135degree; Boiling point: 228degree(resolve); Flash point: 127degree. Difficultly soluble in water(0.16g/100ml, 20degree), soluble in alcohol(1g/10ml), in diethyl ether(1g/10ml), in anhydrous alcohol(12.9g/100ml), in peanut oil(0.9g/100ml), in glycerin(0.3G/100ml)and in acetic acid(11.5g/100ml).
3. Easily soluble in alchol and other solvents, but no in water.
4. Sorbic Acid can restrain effectively the activity of mould, yeast and aerophile bacteria.
5. Restrain growth and reproduction of the pernicious micro oraganism as pseudomonas, staphylococcus salmonella action to restrain growth is more powerful than killing. Meanwhile, it can not restrain useful microoraganim growth as Anaerobic spore-bearing bacilli, acidophil therefore to lengthen food store period and remain food original flavor.
6. The preservative efficiency of sorbic acid is 5-10 times sodium benzoate.
1. sorbic acid has been used extensively in food, drink, vegetables in soy, tobacco, drugs, cosmetics, agricultural products, forage and other domain. Its application should be wide and wide in the world.
2. As Unsaturated acid, it also used as resin, aromatics and rubber industry.
3. As acidic preservative, sorbic acid is also used well in neutral food (ph6.0-6.5). The preservative efficiency of sodium benzoate will decrease clearly and have a bed taste while PH>4.
4. Sorbic acid can be used by direct adding, spraying, retting, dry spraying, using in packing material and other method
5. Sorbic acid does not have carcinogenic and teratogenic effects on the human body. The low solubility of sorbic acid in water affects its application in food. So, food additive producers usually change sorbate into potassium sorbate which has good solubility, so that they can expand the application fields of sorbate products.
