Sec.  184.1733  Sodium benzoate.

    (a) Sodium benzoate is the chemical benzoate of soda 
(C7H5NaO2), produced by the 
neutralization of benzoic acid with sodium bicarbonate, sodium 
carbonate, or sodium hydroxide. The salt is not found to occur 
naturally.
    (b) The ingredient meets the specifications of the ``Food Chemicals 
Codex,'' 3d Ed. (1981), p. 278, which is incorporated by reference. 
Copies may be obtained from the National Academy Press, 2101 
Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20418, or may be examined at the 
National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). For information on 
the availability of this material at NARA, call 202-741-6030, or go to:

    (c) The ingredient is used as an antimicrobial agent as defined in 
Sec.  170.3(o)(2) of this chapter, and as a flavoring agent and adjuvant 
as defined in Sec.  170.3(o)(12) of this chapter.
    (d) The ingredient is used in food at levels not to exceed good 
manufacturing practice. Current usage results in a maximum level of 0.1 
percent in food. (The Food and Drug Administration has not determined 
whether significally different conditions of use would be GRAS.)
    (e) Prior sanctions for this ingredient different from the uses 
established in this section, or different from that set forth in part 
181 of this chapter, do not exist or have been waived.
