Most foods contain sufficient nutrients to support microbial growth. 4). Food additives, such as preservatives, are required to ensure that processed food remains safe and unspoiled during its shelf-life. A range of preservatives are used in food manufacture, including that of traditional foods. 5). The parabens (benzoic acid esters) are more effective at neutral pH conditions. The various intrinsic and extrinsic parameters are described in greater detail in many other publications (see Forsythe 2000).
