NS-1010 is a custom blend of calcium propionate and potassium sorbate. This custom blend is effective at a pH range of 5.0-6.5 against different types of spoilage organisms, which makes this system more effective. This blend allows for enhanced stability and increased shelf life.
NS-1010 is a deodorized preservative system that is effective against yeast, mold, and rope bacteria at a pH range of 5.0-6.5. The calcium propionate portion of this blend, is effective at the pH of 5.0 against mold, rope, and some bacteria but is ineffective against yeast. Using calcium propionate instead of sodium propionate is ideal when a chemical leavening agent is present. Potassium sorbate is effective up to a pH of 6.5 against yeast and mold.
