Applications of Ammonium propionate
a) The main purpose Used for anti-corrosion, fungicide.b) Under the precondition of acid producing ionizing propionic acid, antimicrobial resistance.
To prevent the formation of yellow aspergillus element have special effects, and almost is invalid for yeast.
For all kinds of mold, gram-negative bacillus effect is good. The lower the pH anti-corrosion effect is better.
For grain mildew proof and anticaking there
