NS-1047S 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 against different spoilage organisms which makes this blend more effective than the individual components by themselves. This blend allows for enhanced stability and increased shelf life.
NS-1047S is a deodorized preservative system that works against bacteria, mold, and yeast at pHs below 2.0-6.5. This blend has less sodium benzoate than sodium propionate for the higher pH environment systems. Sodium Propionate works against mold, rope, and some other bacteria in a pH of 5.0. Potassium sorbate works against yeast and mold, up to a pH of 6.5. Sodium benzoate works well against the yeast and bacteria in lower pH systems of 2.0-4.5.
