Question

Name some of the preservatives which  are used i the preservation of fruits and vegetables as pickles.


Solution

Fruits and vegetables are initially dried thoroughly before making pickles to get rid of the water content in them because this can cause them to decay or get spoilt. After this, salt is added in high concentration to the pickles to act as a preserving agent and to inhibit undesirable microbial activity. This provides a conducive environment for the required fermentation and ensures that the pickle lasts for a long time.
