Food-grade benzoic acid is a chemical compound commonly used as a preservative in the food and beverage industry. It is a white, crystalline solid with the chemical formula C7H6O2. The most common forms of benzoic acid used in the food industry are its salt derivatives, such as sodium benzoate (NaC7H5O2) and potassium benzoate (KC7H5O2).
