Propionates are the preservatives of choice when it comes to reliable food safety for bakery items. For yeast leavened products calcium propionate (E282), is the standard product of choice as it efficiently inhibits moulds and rope forming bacteria while having a minimal impact on yeast activity.
Ca(HCOO)2, is the calcium salt of formic acid, HCOOH. It is also known as food additive E238 in food industry. The mineral form is very rare and called formicaite. It is known from a few boron deposits. It may be produced synthetically by reacting calcium oxide or calcium hydroxide with formic acid.

Benzoic acid , C7H6O2 (or C6H5COOH), is a colorless crystalline solid and a simple aromatic carboxylic acid. The name is derived from gum benzoin, which was for a long time its only known source. Benzoic acid occurs naturally in many plants and it serves as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of many secondary metabolites.
Benzoic acid is mainly consumed in the production of phenol by oxidative decarboxylation at 300−400 °C. Benzoic acid is a precursor to benzoyl chloride. Benzoic acid is a precursor to benzoyl chloride. Benzoic acid and its salts are used as a food preservatives, represented by the E-numbers E210, E211, E212, and E213. Benzoic acid inhibits the growth of mold, yeast and some bacteria.
Sodium benzoate has the chemical formula NaC7H5O2; it is a widely used food preservative, with E number E211. It is the sodium salt of benzoic acid and exists in this form when dissolved in water. It can be produced by reacting sodium hydroxide with benzoic acid. Benzoic acid occurs naturally at low levels in cranberries, prunes, greengage plums, cinnamon, ripe cloves, and apples.
Acetic acid is an organic compound with the chemical formula CH3COOH. Acetic Acid is a synthetic carboxylic acid with antibacterial and antifungal properties. Although its mechanism of action is not fully known, undissociated acetic acid may enhance lipid solubility allowing increased fatty acid accumulation on the cell membrane or in other cell wall structures. Acetic acid, glacial is a clear colorless liquid with a strong odor of vinegar.

Lactic acid bacteria have been used to ferment or culture foods for at least 4000 years. They are used in particular in fermented milk products from all over the world, including yoghurt, cheese, butter, buttermilk, kefir and koumiss. Lactic acid occurs naturally in many food products. It has been in used as an acidifier, peservative and pH regulator. There are many properties of lactic acid which make it a very versatile ingredient in the food industry. It has a pronounced preservative action, and it regulates the microflora. It has been found to be very effective against certain type of microorganisms. Combination of lactic acid and acetic acid gives synergic effects in antibacterial activity.
Lactic acid is a natural sourdough acid, which gives the bread its characteristic flavor, and therefore it can be used for direct acidification in the production of sourdough. Typically, salt-like crystals found on the outside of some cheese will be calcium lactate. In many cases, this method provides a low level of bitterness in comparison with other products. It has been used as a food thickener and preservative in fruits and as baking soda. Another application of calcium lactate is acid regulator by maintaining pH levels.
