Propionates prevent microbes from producing the energy they need, like benzoates do. However, unlike benzoates, propionates do not require an acidic environment.
Calcium propionate is often preferable to sodium, both to reduce sodium levels in the diet, but also because calcium ions are necessary for the enzyme amylase to act on the starches in bread, making them available for the yeast, and improving the texture of the bread.

Why do we charge for this paperwork?
The majority of our customers do not require this paperwork so we are able to pass on the savings. The cost of supplying this paperwork for a $10 product outstrips the product price. Compliance is a major cost to our company and if you require this then its only fair you share the cost. These fees can get quite high for example with all the information required for Organic Certification. See below on how to avoid the fees.
Don't want to pay for a certificate?
Then please purchase a box quantity of the product. This varies depending on the product but is usually a 25Kg container.
