Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): antimicrobial food preservative
A food preservative which prevents decomposition of food by preventing the growth of fungi or bacteria. In European countries, E-numbers for permitted food preservatives are from E200 to E299, divided into sorbates (E200-209), benzoates (E210-219), sulfites (E220-229), phenols and formates (E230-239), nitrates (E240-259), acetates (E260-269), lactates (E270-279), propionates (E280-289) and others (E290-299).
antifungal agent
An antimicrobial agent that destroys fungi by suppressing their ability to grow or reproduce.
plant metabolite
Any eukaryotic metabolite produced during a metabolic reaction in plants, the kingdom that include flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms.
phytoestrogen
Any compound produced by a plant that happens to have estrogenic activity.
Application(s): antimicrobial food preservative
