    Hi,

    Does anyone know if a juice with benzoic acid and Scorbic acid will ferment?

    Thanks

    Benzoic acid is used as a preservative in juices to prolong shelf life and to prevent fermentation, but I don't know at what levels / concentrations it does so, nor if it dissipates if it allowed to sit a while.
