I know there are so many different types of preservatives (sodium benzoate, citric acid, potassium chloride, insert other science-lab-sounding-name here). Are there any I should specifically be avoiding/consuming only in very small quantities? Are all of them bad? Are any of them safe?

hi elle,

I find this link very handy for a complete list of additives on a single page, http://fedup.com.au/information/information/complete-lists-of-additives-6
It includes warnings of Avoid or Caution next to any additive of concern.

I have the link saved on my (smart) phone, so i can refer to as needed while shopping. The page is tailored for Australia/New Zealand, but all the info still applies.

& there is plenty of other good info on the site, for example, Artificial colours around the world & Nasty additives in the USA (pdf), have a browse...
