The three classes of synthetic preservatives most often used in foods are sulphites, nitrites and benzoates. Sulphites are used to prevent bacterial growth in vinegar or salt, dried fruits and vegetables. The potato and cheese product are preserved with sorbic acid. Nitrites are used to protect against botulism in meat products like sausages and hams. Benzoic acid is more effective than molds and bacteria against yeasts. It is used in low sugar jams, jellies and condiments as an antifungal and antibacterial. The chelating agents such as EDTA, polyphosphates and citric acid usually prevent oxidation of metals and increase spoilage by binding metals such as copper and iron.
