Food Preservatives are commonly used to extend the shelf life of perishable food products and decrease food spoilage thereby maintaining the nutritional quality of the products. The anti-microbial preservatives inhibit microbial growth whereas the anti-oxidant preservatives reduce the oxidation rate of lipid and vitamin content present in food products. The anti-enzymatic preservatives control the enzymatic processes and prevent the harmful effects of chemical enzymes. For instance, anti- enzymatic preservatives prevent the fruits from getting ripened before harvesting. Chelating agents bind with trace metal ions and increase the efficiency of anti-oxidant preservatives.
