Preservatives are substances that commonly added to various foods and pharmaceutical products in order to prolong their shelf life. The addition of preservatives to such products, especially to those that have higher water content, is essential for avoiding alteration and degradation by microorganisms during storage Benzoic acid, in the form of sodium benzoate, is a widely used food preservative suitable for acid foods.

Benzoic acid is often used in combination with sorbic acid at levels of to %. Commonly used levels. Preservative. Pharmaceutical and Environmental Industries book Citric acid.

Preservatives Used in Pharmaceutical Industry Various types of excipients are added in the medicinal products to serve different purpose for example to enhance stability/ absorption, consumption, administration, aesthetic appearance etc.

Preservatives are substances (natural or chemical) that are added to pharmaceutical products to prevent any kind of physical. Preservatives have been commonly used as additives in pharmaceutical products, cosmetics,and food.

Liquid preparations are particularly susceptible to microbial growth because of the nature of their preparations are pro-tected by the addition of preservatives that prevent the alteration and degrada.

Preservative Manufacturers in India take extra care to make sure that the products being manufactured are microbe-free throughout the manufacturing process and even later, during the storage and shipping stages. Preservatives are put in foods to inhibit growth of bacteria, yeasts, or molds that can cause disease.

Chemical preservation cannot totally keep products from spoiling, but they slow the spoiling process caused by by: 2. Chapter-1(A). Preservatives – Associated Problems and Alternative Solutions Development and evaluation of novel preservatives from simple organic acids 5 Different methods of preservation: Preservation of food and pharmaceuticals is a continuous fight against microorganisms that are spoiling or making them unusable.

Much of how the Switzerland-based multinational will "pioneer a new industry between food and pharma" will be pieced. The use of chemicals to prevent or delay the spoilage of foods derives in part from the fact that such compounds are used with great success in the treatment of diseases of humans, animals, and plants.

Pharmaceutical microbiology is a specialist area of microbiology and one concerned with the use of microorganisms in pharmaceutical development and with maintaining contamination control.

This chapter introduces the subject and outlines some the typical tests conducted within a pharmaceutical microbiology laboratory (such as microbial limits, sterility, endotoxin, water testing.

In the pharmaceutical industry, many of the ingredients used in formulations have the ability to promote microbial growth. Such formulations are therefore susceptible to unwanted contamination.

To prevent this from occurring, antimicrobial agents or preservatives need to be added to the formulation. Preservatives are included in pharmaceutical dosage form to control the microbial bioburden of the formulation.

Ideally, preservatives should exhibit the following properties: possess a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity encompassing Gram-positive and. They focus particularly on the nutritional losses thay may occur if foods are exposed to more than one kind of preservative, on the effects of radiation exposure on workers handling irradiated foods, and on environmental hazards that could emerge in the transport, storage, and handling of radioactive food-processing wastes.
