The Food Doctor - Healing Foods for Mind and Body A-Z Guide To Food Additive (Paperback)

E213 is a food additive approved by the European Union (EU) and used as an antifungal and antibacterial synthetic preservative in food products. (This preservative is not as effective with fungi.)

E213 is also known by the common name calcium benzoate and is the calcium salt of benzoic acid (E210).

Allergic reactions to E213 may occur in people who suffer from asthma, the skin disease urticaria or those sensitive to aspirin, especially when taken in conjunction with tartrazine (E102).

Examples of food and drink products that sometimes include E213:

  • concentrated pineapple juice
