Calcium propanoate or calcium propionate Ca(C2H5COO)2 is the calcium salt of propanoic acid.
Calcium Propionate, (CH3CH2COO)2Ca, is an effective inhibitor of the growth of certain moulds and some bacteria and it is applied as a preservative in dairy products. It is listed as a food additive with E number 282. Calcium propanoate is used as a preservative in a wide variety of products, including bread, other baked goods, processed meat, whey, and other dairy products.
