Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to sodium propionate (CAS RN 137-40-6), potassium propionate (CAS RN 327-62-8), and calcium propionate (CAS RN 4075-81-4). Propionic acid is a short chain saturated fatty acid comprising of ethane attached to the carbon of a carboxy group. Propionic acid is a naturally occurring carboxylic acid in milk products and occurs as a product of bacterial fermentation. Organic acids occur in dairy products as a result of normal animal metabolism and breakdown of milk proteins, fat, lactose, and citrate during manufacture and storage. Propionic acid is a major contributor to the characteristic nutty sweet flavor of Swiss-type cheeses, including Emmental, Gruy re, and Appenzeller, and, consequently, Propionibacterium play an important role in the production of propionic acid in cheese.
