NS-1047B is a custom blend of sodium propionate, sodium benzoate, and potassium sorbate. This blend is effective at a pH range of 2.0-6.5, for the more acidic food environments and different spoilage organisms. This custom blend is more effective than the individual components by themselves. This blend allows for enhanced stability and increased shelf life.
