Food additive manufacturer Xi'an Bosen Biotechnology Co., Ltd. food additives are chemically synthesized substances or natural substances added to food to improve food quality and color, flavor, taste, shape, nutritional value, as well as for storage and processing process needs.
Food additives include nutritional additives, food processing aids. Food additives can be a substance or a mixture of substances & most of them are not inherent in the basic food ingredients themselves, but the production, storage, packaging, use and other processes in the food to achieve a certain purpose and added substances.

Fourth, it is conducive to meeting the special needs of different groups of people and enhance the individual characteristics of food. Fifth, it is conducive to the comprehensive application of raw materials.
Preservatives can slow down the deterioration of products caused by mold, air, bacteria, fungi or yeast. In addition to maintaining food quality, they help control contamination that can lead to foodborne illness, including life-threatening botulism. A group of preservatives - antioxidants - prevent fats and oils and the foods that contain them from becoming sour or developing off-flavors.
