Abstract Share this page

Abstract Potassium sorbate and sodium propionate brought about a marked inhibition in the growth of Penicillium expansum and a proportionally greater inhibition in the synthesis of patulin by the mold. At inhibitor concentrations used commercially in bakery products, propionate inhibited growth less efficiently than sorbate did but was a more effective inhibitor of patulin synthesis.
