Probake SP (sodium propionate) is an effective inhibitor of the growth of certain molds and some bacteria in bakery goods. It is usually preferred in non-yeast leavened bakery products because the calcium ions’ of calcium propionate interfere with the chemical leavening agents. In those bakery products, such as cakes, tortillas, pie fillings, etc., chemically leaved agents are used (e.g. baking powder). Probake SP is easy to handle and easy to incorporate into flour.
