Effects of sodium benzoate, a widely used food preservative, on glucose homeostasis and metabolic profiles in humans.

Abstract

Sodium benzoate is a widely used preservative found in many foods and soft drinks. It is metabolized within mitochondria to produce hippurate, which is then cleared by the kidneys. We previously reported that ingestion of sodium benzoate at the generally regarded as safe (GRAS) dose leads to a robust excursion in the plasma hippurate level [1]. Since… (More)
