Sodium Bisulfate, also known as sodium hydrogen sulfate, is the sodium salt of the bisulfate anion, with the molecular formula NaHSO4.
- Sodium bisulfate is used as a food additive to leaven cake mixes (make them rise) as well as being used in meat and poultry processing and most recently in browning prevention of fresh-cut produce.
- Sodium bisulfate is considered natural by the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) since it is made from minerals. No artificial or synthetic ingredients are used in the manufacturing. No covalent bonds are broken or formed in the manufacturing process, therefore it is not synthetic.
- Sodium bisulfate lowers the pH without a sour taste and has been used in the place of citric, malic or phosphoric acids and can also be used as an anti-browning agent.
- Sodium bisulfate is considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA.
