Mold contamination is considered a serious problem amongst bakers, and conditions commonly found in baking present near-optimal conditions for mold growth. Calcium propionate (along with propionic acid andSodium Propionate) is used as a preservative in bread and other baked goods. It also occurs naturally in butter and some types of cheese. Calcium propionate keeps bread and baked goods from spoiling by preventing mold and bacterial growth.
