Parchem – fine & specialty chemicals has a proven track record for the supply of high-quality, wide-use specialty chemicals like sorbic acid, delivered around the globe accurately, on time, and on budget.

Sorbic acid is a substance with applications across industries ranging from flavors and cosmetics to pharmaceuticals and rubber.  It is currently one of the leading preservatives used in food and beverages. Sorbic acid is primarily applied commercially in foods such as cheeses, fruit jellies and preserves, and
margarine. It is widely sought after, due to its
antimicrobial, mold and yeast inhibiting, and fungicidal properties. We also see sorbic acid applied in cosmetics, animal feed, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, inks, and glues. Additionally, sorbic acid is an additive in alkyd coatings, drying oils, rubber, and food packaging.

Sorbic Acid has a common CAS number of 110-44-1 , though it may also be found under  CAS number 22500-92-1. Also known scientifically as 2,4-Hexadienoic acid among other synonyms, this chemical is available in the form of white powder or crystals. It has a faint odor, is light-sensitive, and it must be stored appropriately. Sorbic Acid is a GRAS (generally recognized as safe) substance.
