Sodium Erythorbate

Sodium erythorbate is a new type of antioxidant, which acts as preservatives by inhibiting the effects of oxygen on food.  It is produced from sugars mainly derived from sugar cane, beets and corn.  This kind of food additives can keep the color and natural flavor of the food and prolong the shelf time.


Sodium erythorbate has been found to cause general side effects such as headaches, body flushing, generalized fatigue and malaise, dizziness, lightheadedness and hemolysis, a condition where red blood cells rupture leading to anemia and other complications.  Can cause nausea, vomiting, heartburn, gastritis, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. Can lead to a buildup of acids in the bloodstream leading to the formation of kidney stones and the symptoms associated with them. These include flank pain, blood in the urine, and kidney and bladder infections.
