What are potassium sorbate and methyl
paraben listed in the "ingredients" of Calorad®?
Potassium sorbate and methyl paraben are both extracts from blueberries. Potassium sorbate is the
lactone acid from blueberries and acts as a natural preservative in Calorad®. Methyl Paraben is a fine, white methyl-compound (containing no alcohol) which is extracted from blueberries (or may be artificially synthesized) and acts as a bonding agent as well as an anti-fungal and natural preservative. It is used widely in foods and pharmaceuticals and is generally recognized as a safe food additive and preservative.
The presence of these products insures a long shelf-life for your bottle of Calorad®.
