Peracetic acid

Peracetic acid is an environmentally safe and versatile anti-microbial agent and a powerful antioxidant. It emits oxygen at lower temperatures than other bleaching agents. It is effective against micro-organisms and is not deactivated by catalase and peroxidase, the enzymes that break down hydrogen peroxide. It is widely used in food applications.

Peracetic acid is manufactured by Thai Peroxide.
