Amla juice and sodium benzoate this question feed

asked by Dr. Mohit on 4 July 2014 15:46

Hello Sir,

I read on the amla juice bottle label from divya pharmacy that sodium benzoate is used as preservative in amle juice. I have read that that vitamin C reacts with sodium benzoate and makes benzene which is a carcinogen. Sodium benzoate without Vitamin C is OK.

I would like to know if this combination is harmful for the body and cause poising or any other type of damage to body organs.

Warm Regards, Dr.Mohit

Doctor's Ayurvedic Advice:-

It is always better to use anything without preservatives. But in the case of benzene in fruit juice or other carbonated drinks it has not been outlawed form use as it is used only in very small amounts. It is normally less than 0.2 - 3.1 micrograms but that which is inhaled near petrol stations, industries, vehicles or other areas where it is present is more than 220micrograms.

In traditional Ayurvedic medicines there will be no preservatives where jaggery, sugar and the fermentation in Arista preparation allows it to have a long shelf life.

Thus it is always recommended to use any product without preservatives when you do not have the oppurtunity to get it fresh.

Amla is not commonly found in some countries other than India, so it becomes necessary to preserve it to increase the shelf life.

This is the current status of benzene in fruit juice by FAO, but after other researches it depends on the results of the usage of the soft drinks with preservatives.

Does Amla Juice by patanjali contain the safe levels of sodium benzonate?, SInce sodium Benzonate reacts with Vitamin C and causes benzene which is cancer causing. So is having Patanjali Amla juice safe enough

sir, what amount of benzene can form in amla juice? and why it is not printed on the bottle itself the amount of preservative used in the product! Divya pharmacy should consider researching on amount of benzene can form on their product!!
