Why does BiOmega Jr. contain potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate?
Foodborne illness caused by microbes or pathogens is a common and costly public health problem. Each year, thousands of people are sickened by consuming contaminated foods or beverages. The young and the elderly are most susceptible to food borne contamination. Many different disease-causing microbes, or pathogens, can contaminate foods, so there are many different foodborne infections. By inhibiting the growth of microorganisms, preservatives help prevent outbreaks of food-borne illnesses. Potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate are the preservatives included in Biomega Junior to inhibit the growth of microbes and pathogens.
