4 main characteristics of acid
Sorbic acid outwardly resembles ordinary sugar, but it tastes slightly sour, and the specific aroma is subtle.

Unlike other substances absorbed during sorption, the acid is practically insoluble in water, unlike ethanol, which dissolves it well.
Rowan is a natural source of sorbic acid. It is noteworthy that the substance got its name from the Latin Sorbus (mountain ash), since it was first synthesized from the unripe fruits of this tree. In the laboratory, the acid was obtained at the very beginning of the 20th century.
In the modern world, a substance is synthesized by condensing the aggregates of ketene (ethenone) and β-methacrolein. Acidic surfactants, for example, boron trifluoride, are also involved in this process.
It should be noted that sorbic acid is also found in nature in other plant products.
The structural formula of sorbic acid is as follows: C6H8O2.
Melting point: 134 degrees.
< Sorbic acid is found in foods, and labels describing its presence may be indicated by the E200 code. As a biocide, the substance inhibits the growth of harmful fungi and mold in food. This is especially true for those food products, the acid-base balance of which is less than 6.5.
The substance is often added to candied fruit pieces (candied fruits), low-alcohol fermentation drinks, sweet sauces, various fillings for pastries, dairy products, concentrated soups, confectionery, as well as in the process of making wine.

Effects on human health
Research has led to the conclusion that the preservative not only does not have a detrimental effect on the human body, but in some way can be beneficial. We are talking about its antiseptic effect, that is, the acid helps the body to cope with harmful microbes and accelerates the elimination of toxins. In addition, it has been scientifically proven that the substance is not carcinogenic.
Despite the fact that that the substance is of low toxicity, there are established doses that should not be increased. The calculation of the permissible dose in milligrams should be carried out based on body weight: for each kg, no more than 12.5 milligrams of sorbic acid should be consumed in one day. That is, the supplement should be about 0.2 percent of the food consumed.
A side effect that occurs when the manufacturer increases the allowable dosage or when a person consumes a significant amount of food with this substance in the composition, can become the following:
an allergic reaction in any of its manifestations;
itching / rash;
skin irritation ;
In addition, exceeding the recommended dosage can lead to the excretion of cobalamin (vitamin B12) from the human body, which can lead to neurological disorders.
