Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate are on many packaged products. If it comes from a box, a can or a wrapper read the labels and see if these two items are listed.  If yes, Doctor Olga recommends not to consume them for the following reasons.

•    Could also cause hyperactivity in children

Potassium Sorbate
