    Most artificial food presevatives are chemicals and any chemical can be harmful if taken in more or too frequently.
    Commonest food preservative is common salt – the basis of pickling and preserving fish in dried/ salted form.
    There are classes of food preservatives. Whenever you buy any packed food item, read the label carefully for
    “Permitted Food preservatives used”. They would also have mentioned the class of food preservatives.
    Trick is to use products of credible manufacturers, whose word can be trusted.
