Additives

  • E250 - Sodium nitrite


    Sodium nitrite: Sodium nitrite is the inorganic compound with the chemical formula NaNO2. It is a white to slightly yellowish crystalline powder that is very soluble in water and is hygroscopic. It is a useful precursor to a variety of organic compounds, such as pharmaceuticals, dyes, and pesticides, but it is probably best known as a food additive to prevent botulism. It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a basic health system.Nitrate or nitrite -ingested- under conditions that result in endogenous nitrosation has been classified as "probably carcinogenic to humans" by International Agency for Research on Cancer -IARC-.

  • E301 - Sodium ascorbate


    Sodium ascorbate: Sodium ascorbate is one of a number of mineral salts of ascorbic acid -vitamin C-. The molecular formula of this chemical compound is C6H7NaO6. As the sodium salt of ascorbic acid, it is known as a mineral ascorbate. It has not been demonstrated to be more bioavailable than any other form of vitamin C supplement.Sodium ascorbate normally provides 131 mg of sodium per 1‚000 mg of ascorbic acid -1‚000 mg of sodium ascorbate contains 889 mg of ascorbic acid and 111 mg of sodium-. As a food additive, it has the E number E301 and is used as an antioxidant and an acidity regulator. It is approved for use as a food additive in the EU, USA, and Australia and New Zealand.In in vitro studies, sodium ascorbate has been found to produce cytotoxic effects in various malignant cell lines, which include melanoma cells that are particularly susceptible.
