Food preservatives are chemical substances that can be either natural or synthetics, and, are added to a product, in this case a food to extend its shelf life, protecting it from bacteria, fungi, yeast, and other kinds of organisms or chemical reactions that may turn the food improper for consumption.

The use of food preservatives is common, and that’s why we don’t pay much attention to it.
