Food preservatives are specific additives to prevent deterioration of finished products from enzymes, microorganisms, and exposure to oxygen.
Acidulants are chemical compounds that give a tart, sour or acidic flavours to foods or enhance the perceived sweetness of foods. Acidulants can also function as leavening agents and emulsifiers in some kinds of processed foods. Though acidulants can lower pH they do differ from acidity regulators, which are food additives specifically intended to modify the stability of food or enzymes within it. Typical acidulants are acetic acid (e.g. in pickles) and citric acid.
Weighting agent plays a critical role in stable emulsion preparation. A weighting agent is a substance with a relatively higher density than the oil and is soluble in it. In the 1970s, BVO (brominated vegetable oil) was the ideal weighting agent but now it is restricted in use due to alleged health hazard. Now, the more common weighting agents used are ester gums and sucrose acetate isobutyrate (SAIB).
